CSR maturity

D-
Toshiba published a social and societal responsibility report for 2010 which was both drawn up by a third party firm and whose self-assessment of a "B" has been validated by the GRI. In addition, Toshiba states that it has followed the principles of ISO26000 in drawing it up. The performance indicators are clearly identified and assessed and it is made more reader friendly. Furthermore, the majority have been achieved within the timescales laid down. 
Toshiba's obvious desire for transparency is reinforced by the publication of data on its products, however it is a shame that this is not routine, though we note that they are making a real effort.
Toshiba also appears in 27th place in the Newsweek "Green Rankings" of the 500 most environmentally responsible global companies, in particular thanks to its environmental management.

This good performance does not prevent Greenpeace from penalising the company by putting it in 14th place because of its failure to adhere to its undertaking to launch products free from PVC and halogenated flame retardants before April 2010. 

Finally, Toshiba supported citizens' actions to the tune of 2.7 billion yen in 891 projects all over the world involving environmental, social and humanitarian subjects. On the other hand, Toshiba does not seem to take a stance in the struggle against conflicts linked to the extraction of the raw materials needed by the information technology industry, but concentrates on internal social problems, such as diversity and gender equality.
