Nikon nominated as one of 'leaders' by the investor coalition formed by signatories to the UN-backed Responsible Investment Initiative (PRI)

April 22, 2010

Nikon Corporation (Michio Kariya, President; Chiyoda ward, Tokyo) has been participating in the UN Global Compact (*1) initiative's ten principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment, and anti-corruption since July 2007. Since then, Nikon has been submitting the CSR Report that describes CSR activities of Nikon group companies annually to UN Global Compact office, and Nikon CSR REPORT 2008 received Notable status on Communication on Progress (Notable COP) (*2).

This year, Nikon is proud to announce that the investors who are signatories to the Principles for Responsible Investment initiative (PRI) (*3) nominated Nikon as one of 'Leaders' for producing high-quality sustainability reports deemed useful for investors. This is the third year that the PRI-supporting investor coalition has engaged in such assessment since 2008, and in this year they have praised 44 companies in 20 countries as 'leaders' including Nikon.

Nikon strives to continue our commitment to the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact as we carry out CSR-oriented business operations that are transparent and honest.
