We clearly state that we will achieve business growth by working together with all stakeholders including “customers and the general public,” “shareholders” and “employees.”

In fiscal 2017, we formulated two long-term targets, to "reduce CO2 emissions by 30% from the 2013 level by fiscal 2030" and to "reduce industrial waste per unit of sales by 1% annually through fiscal 2030."
We will engage in various initiatives, such as a "modal shift" from truck-dependent transport system to rail and sea transport system and the systematical introduction of eco-friendly facilities and vehicles. By achieving these long-term targets, we will actively contribute to the realization of sustainable societies.
In addition, our company has established systems to promote compliance management by establishing the CSR Headquarters and compliance committee to promote sensible business activities.
