Building a better Nintendo
Following yesterday’s Q2 report on Fiscal Year 2023, Nintendo has shared a follow-up Corporate Management Policy Briefing that has shared some interesting tidbits.
In a portion of their briefing, Nintendo has shared their ESG initiatives, which stands for Environmental, Social, and Governance goals. This is all part of Nintendo’s efforts to contribute to the worldwide welfare of people, societies and the environment.
Nintendo says they take energy and resource efficiency into consideration when designing products, but also implement environmentally conscious initiatives like conserving resources and reducing CO2 emissions in each stage of manufacturing, transportation, sales and after-sales services. Nintendo is also moving forward with further initiatives, such as expanding the use of renewable energies and efficiently utilizing resources.
As for the social side of things, Nintendo says they design products for safety and disseminate information to help consumers use them more safely. In addition, Nintendo provides the Switch Parental Controls app to ensure a healthy gameplay environment for children, and they promote CSR procurement activities throughout our supply chain.
In terms of employee initiatives, Nintendo is working to enhance and promote the use of our HR systems to create an environment where a more diverse workforce can thrive.
Finally, in the area of governance, Nintendo is working to promote diversity by appointing female and non-Japanese directors, sharing further value with shareholders by introducing a stock-based compensation system, and continuing to disclose information fairly and in a timely and appropriate manner.
