INTAGE GROUP'S SUSTAINABILITY

DECLARATION TO ACHIEVE THE SDGs

The INTAGE Group will contribute to the realization of a healthy, sustainable society through our efforts to maintain the data utilization environment, and to ceaselessly improve data utilization values that connect the viewpoints of our customers with those of consumers.

The spread of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has made us step into a "new normal." We strive for a healthy, sustainable society where safety and security are coordinated with economic growth.

Two major changes lie ahead in our path.

One of them is the change of the buying behaviors, values, and consciousness of consumers. As a result of non-face-to-face and non-contact actions becoming common, consumers will change at first passively, later actively, and evolve further actions.

There, "compassion for people and the global community" will lie deeply underneath, which is based on the experiences of "sorrow" and "an affectionate bond" that COVID-19 has brought us. Businesses must also change not only to capture such changes in consumers and meet their needs, but also to go one step further to create demand and realize a healthy, sustainable society in accordance with their feelings.

The other change is the progress of digital utilization. Diverse areas such as purchasing, education, healthcare, and workplaces require services that integrate online and offline. Regardless of business category or sector, it is essential to utilize digital with a sense of speed and to innovate services that integrate online and offline with the perspectives of consumers (recipients of services) above all.

The most important points to respond to these two changes are, we believe, to maintain the "perspectives of consumers" and to "handle data with a sense of ethics" on the basis of a consumer-centric attitude.

In the 60 years since our inauguration, we have had a vision to "Know today, Power tomorrow: We connect our customers to their customers, to create a prosperous society of limitless possibilities," and have continuously enhanced the values of data utilization that connect the viewpoints of our customers and those of consumers.

Furthermore, in such a process, we ensure that data is handled fairly and ethically, managing personal information and the information of our customers (companies) properly, thereby enhancing the skills of data collection and processing, and fostering human resources that handle data (including IT), which is "to maintain the data utilization environment." We consider that we should never forget these four matters, especially in these times called the era of data.

A bridge between our customers and consumers means nothing less than power that sustains these matters. We see the changes triggered by the spread of COVID-19 as an opportunity to contribute to the realization of a healthy, sustainable society where safety and security are coordinated with economic growth by this power. We also regard this as the social mission of the INTAGE Group.

We will understand changing consumers with consideration and curiosity while watching ourselves change as consumers, and we will continuously enhance the values of data utilization that "connect the viewpoints of our customers and those of consumers" while making efforts to maintain the data utilization environment constantly. With these, we will contribute to the realization of a healthy, sustainable society.
