Notification regarding the creation of a Basic Sustainability Policy, the establishment of a

Sustainability Committee, and the identification of material issues

Nihon Chouzai Co., Ltd. (hereinafter "the Company") announces that it passed a resolution at its Board of Directors' meeting held on December 20, 2021 to create a Basic Sustainability Policy and establish a Sustainability Committee, as part of efforts to achieve a sustainable society and enhance corporate value. At a meeting of the Sustainability Committee held on the same day, the following "material issues" (key issues) were identified.

1. Goals

As societal issues and environmental issues become increasingly serious, the Nihon Chouzai Group views sustainability as an important management theme, and has created a Basic Sustainability Policy and established a Sustainability Committee chaired by the President and CEO to further strengthen and effectively execute sustainability activities. The company has also identified material issues to be given priority in the context of these activities.

2. Basic Sustainability Policy

We in the Nihon Chouzai Group are aware that sustainability is a key element of management strategies for enhancing corporate value over the medium to long term. Based on dialogues and collaborations with a wide range of stakeholders, we are building fair and highly transparent management platforms that respect human rights and take environmental protection into account. Through our business activities, we will work to solve social issues in the medical and healthcare fields and pursue social sustainability.

3. Establishment of the Sustainability Committee

(1) Roles of the Committee

This Committee, positioned directly under the jurisdiction of the Board of Directors, will supervise and evaluate the progress of activities targeting specified material issues, incorporate the results into business strategies, and deliberate on compliance with international guidelines and participation in initiatives, while

(2) Composition of Committee Members

The sustainability committee shall be chaired by the President and CEO, and comprises committee members selected by Nihon Chouzai's Board of Directors.
