For all items marked with a ◎ symbol below, Sojitz has acquired third-party assurance from KPMG AZSA Sustainability Co., Ltd.
＜Scope of assurance＞
FY2016 non-conslidated LTIFR (Lost-Time Injuries Frequency Rate), OIFR (Occupational Illness Frequency Rate), work-related accidents and fatalities suffered by permanent employees, work-related accidents and fatalities suffered by contract employees, turnover rate, labor union membership rate, and average hours of training
The Independent Assurance Report can be found here.
- Includes full-time contract employees
- Number of employees who commenced childcare leave within the fiscal year
- The data were revised on January 29, 2018. The original figures were as follows: "Men 31, Women 13" in year ending March 31, 2015, "Men 29, Women 14" in year ending March 31, 2016, "Men 31, Women 16" in year ending March 31, 2017.
- The rates are below 100% as some employees cannot become union members based on departmental affiliation.
Data on Industrial Health and Safety
- Data only refers to permanent Sojitz employees. No contract employees suffered work-related accidents resulting in illness/injury.
- LTIFR（Lost Time Injuries Frequency Rate）= total hours of lost working time ÷ cumulative hours worked x 1,000,000 (based on standards placed by Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare).
- Industry averages are taken from the “FY2016 Industrial Accident Survey.”
- OIFR(Occupational Illness Frequency Rate) = instances of leave taken due to occupational illness ÷ cumulative hours worked x 1,000,000 (based on standards placed by Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare).
Human Resources Development
- Training refers to employee training, including self-development training, conducted by the Human Resources & General Affairs Department, and e-learning, ISO 14001 environmental standards and CSR training programs provided by other departments.
- Excludes directors, executive officers, Audit & Supervisory Board members and employees who retired as of March 31
- In the years ended March 31, 2015 and 2016, CSR training was for all Sojitz Group employees, but because training became mandatory for sixth-year employees in the year ended March 31, 2016, the training in the year ended March 31, 2017 was conducted only for employees who had not yet attended.
- On January 29, 2018, we made the following corrections: corrected "approx. 17" to "17" for year ended March 31, 2015, "approx.17" to "18" for year ended March 31, 2016, and "approx.18" to "18" for year ended March 31st, 2017.
