Today, the world faces several global issues, including climate change, and the solution to these serious problems is a common challenge for all humanity. The SDGs cannot be achieved by a single country or a large company but rather by all of us as individuals who share a sense of ownership of the goals and act and make choices that lead to a sustainable society.
The Company promotes its business with the mission of "To create a connected society built on better relationships by circulating love." The Company has identified three materialities leading to "solving social issues through services and solutions.": (1) Revitalizing communication, (2) Nurturing feelings, ties, and relationships, and (3)Reducing various burdens through digitalization. Through our e-gift platform business, we aim to create a connected society built on better relationships and solve social issues such as reducing CO2 emissions and resource use and saving time and labor.
Furthermore, for the Group to achieve sustainable growth, it is essential to create a workplace environment where people from various backgrounds can play an active role, and every employee can maximize their abilities. We are building a workplace environment where all employees can work with enthusiasm and enthusiasm.
The Group will continue its efforts to solve social issues and achieve sustainable growth through services and solutions that nurture the ties between among people, businesses, and townships.

The Group has identified materiality as an essential issue to our stakeholders and Group's business in light of the increasing importance of sustainability worldwide, including ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
We have developed an extensive list of environmental, social, and economic challenges, referring to international frameworks and guidelines such as the SASB Standards and SDGs, as well as industry-specific macro trends.
For each of the issues listed in STEP 1, we identified areas of particular relevance to the Group's business. We prioritized them based on their importance to stakeholders and our business.
Of the issues identified and assessed in STEP 2, we identified materiality by classifying and organizing the essential matters into four categories: "Solving social issues through services and solutions" and "Environment," "Society" and "Governance," which are the foundations that support sustainable growth. The identified materiality was approved and decided by the Board of Directors.
