Under this Concept, we aim to effectively achieve social good in the form of relieving anxiety over health and reducing health disparities. This human health care (hhc) concept is also stipulated in our Articles of Incorporation, and to realize this concept, we have worked to quantify the value of non-financial capital, including social impact calculations and employee impact accounting to create long-term, sustainable corporate value, and have focused on communicating information on the link between financial and non-financial value, as well as the visualization of non-financial value, through dialogue between investors and top management and the publication of the Value Creation Report.
