Growing with Society

Dialogue with Our Stakeholders

In addition to maintaining a dialogue with all of our stakeholders, including employees, business
partners, investors, shareholders and local communities, we also invite stakeholders from
outside the company to voice their opinions on Komatsu's management and business.

Global Dialogue with Our Stakeholders

In February 2012, we invited stakeholders from international non-profit organizations as well as local governments and universities in Japan to a dialogue at our Osaka Plant. Under the theme of "Envisioning the manufacturing base of the 21st century," participants discussed issues such as "What does society expect from the Osaka Plant, which we call the 'mother plant' of Komatsu's global production?" and "How can we continue to contribute to society over the long term?" Valuable insights we gained from stakeholder opinions included the importance of maintaining transparent communication and conducting CSR activities throughout the supply chain.

Exchange between Industry-Academia Collaboration Partners

While partnering with major universities in Japan, Komatsu also promotes industry-academia collaborations in China with Shandong University and Tongji University through joint research, internships and other projects. In April 2012, we invited Tongji University faculty members involved in research, career guidance and student internships to Komatsu (Changzhou) Construction Machinery Corp. and the KC Techno Center in Changzhou. We provided an overview of our construction equipment and held a dialogue between Komatsu and guests on developing skilled human resources through efforts such as offering specialized courses, providing student internship procedures and sharing laboratory resources.

In November 2012 and March 2013, meetings were held to present the joint research results of Komatsu's partner universities and the company. The researchers shared technical reports and engaged in a discussion that included student participation.

The proposals and opinions solicited through these discussions are both helpful and unique, and we will make efforts to see them reflected in our business and operations.
