Nintendo is all about creating games, but it’s also a huge company with all the business stuff that entails: shareholders, finance sheets and stacks of paperwork. Business documents can be exceedingly boring, but when Nintendo’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) report starts with a message of “Bringing Surprise and Delight to Our Customers”, you know it’ll be OK.
The in-depth report covers Nintendo’s responsibilities to its employees, production partners and consumers, detailing everything from childcare provisions to inspections carried out to ensure factory workers are treated fairly.
Nintendo’s over-arching philosophy is repeated often in the document: “to develop products that will bring smiles and a sense of wonder to more and more people”.
If you find yourself with a spare five minutes, flick through the Nintendo CSR report to learn things you never knew you wanted to know.
