Communication with Stakeholders

One of the ways Nomura Group interacts with stakeholders is through participation in activities with various initiatives in Japan and overseas that have the objective of contributing to society and the environment. Through dialogue and collaboration with stakeholders, we carefully examine and review the activities and information disclosure we undertake that are related to the economy, society (human rights and labor), and environmental issues. We also report to the Sustainability Committee when needed.
