SUSTAINABILITY

What we point to by promoting "sustainability" is both "an abundant society" and "a brand and company necessary to customers". For that reason, we believe that the activation of "human resources," the origin of everything is of the utmost importance. By making efforts for diversity within the company, we develop "human resources" who can live in a way in which different things become the norm, and for this reason giving expression to differences stops being frightening. We believe that because they are "independent 'human resources' who can make their own decisions," they will give rise to innovation in the company and in society. And this is why "diversity and inclusion" is a part of our sustainability strategy.
