Material Issues

Selection of Material Issues

The life insurance business that the Dai-ichi Life Group performs is the business with high levels of public and social responsibilities for playing a role of complementing the social security system. At the same time, it is expected to maintain stable growth with its flexible actions against various business-environmental changes. To meet these expectations and demands, we have now identified a number of priority issues that we need to tackle as a group. This process began by deriving 50 social issues based on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and analyzing aspects such as areas of interest to our stakeholders, and their relevance to the group's business activities. Our management team then discussed issues from the standpoint of management strategy, and engaged in dialogue with outside experts. We will continue to review issues as necessary in the future, based on changes in the surrounding environment, and areas of particular interest to our stakeholders.
