The Aichi Steel Report 2018 was prepared to assist understanding among our many stakeholders of the approaches taken by Aichi Steel and the Aichi Steel Group in fiscal 2017, ended March 31, 2018. Besides describing these approaches with specific examples, it sets forth as much as possible the causes and future initiatives concerning items for which targets have not yet been met.
This fiscal year, as detailed in our new 2020 Medium-term Management Plan, we have written our report with a focus on clear communication of growth strategies for achieving our vision, and on what value we will contribute to society and how we will provide it.
As before, this report was prepared using a Universal Design*1 (UD) font,*2 and use of color, volume of text, text size and other factors were also taken into consideration to create a more easily readable report.
*1 Design that enables all persons, regardless of age, gender, or disability, to make use of products, services, housing, or facilities, both conveniently and comfortably.
*2 A typeface design based on the concept of universal design.
