Your materiality selection process is orthodox and the KPIs and timeline, as well as the associated guidelines, are sensible. “Carbon neutrality" and "circular economy" are your two most important themes, and a "circular economy" will lead to CO2 emission reductions while bringing growth and profitability at the same time. This is truly a business that has proven its strategic characteristics in the era of SX (Sustainability Transformation). On the other hand, the new business model of expanding CO2 capture and utilization under the CO2 recovery kiln commercialization concept with mechanical plant companies and gas companies is a step up to a European-style circular economy. I am confident that your company's historic corporate mission to "build the nation using cement" will continue with its unifying force and brilliance in the future.
