DMC'S CSR

DMC CSR

CSR Concept

DMC touchscreens are used in indicators, industrial-use monitors, machine tools, measurement devices as well as in KIOSK and other terminals. Recently, expanded use in public services includes medical devices, ticket machines, and digital signage, showing the important social responsibility that DMC has accepted.

We recognize that providing products, solutions and other services, returning our business achievements to society, and sincerely performing business activities while assuring product safety and security, environmental conservation, compliance with laws and regulations, respect for human rights, and fair and equitable transactions lead to the fulfillment of our social responsibility.

We also recognize that participating in regional activities is an extremely important social responsibility, and we are always on the lookout for more ways to be involved.

CSR Promotion Structure

DMC has established a CSR promotion structure centering on its CSR Secretariat to uniformly promote a wide range of approaches by individual departments and divisions. The CSR Secretariat is directed by the president to ensure that top management is directly involved in the operation of CSR activities. DMC has also established a structure to discuss and report important CSR matters at management meetings to promote uniform approaches for both management and CSR.

  • DMC leverages multidisciplinary cooperation with departments and divisions in charge of CSR to ensure effective product safety and security, respect for human rights, labor practices, supply chain management, environmental conservation, and regional contribution. The CSR Secretariat provides full support for these activities.
