Participants in the Global Compact, who endorse 10 principles of 4 fields of human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption, aim at the more sustainable and comprehensive development of international economy. The Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) is an international initiative aimed to implement good governance, eradicate political corruption and poverty, and bring about economic development of resource producing countries by improving the transparency of the flow of funds from oil, gas, and mineral resource exploration industries to the governments of resource producing countries and intensifying the fund management responsibility using global standard methodologies. Initiatives INPEX Participates In CSR Roadmap is a set of targets and a mid-term action plan targeted the period up to 2016 for the purpose of realizing the continuous reinforcement of CSR management as defined by our medium- to long-term vision. The period after 2016, in which the Ichthys LNG Project is scheduled to commence production, is positioned as the third phase in CSR Roadmap. By achieving targets given below, we intend to realize CSR on a global scale to enhance our corporate value.

They also approach CSR from diverse perspectives, participating in international initiatives including the UN Global Compact, EITI, and IPIECA, and holding dialogues with stakeholders. As much international attention is paid to INPEX's dialogues with indigenous people in Australia and its activities contributing to local development in its areas of operation, I hope INPEX will report such activities proactively at international conferences and strive to be a leading company in CSR management as well.
