- Yoshinori Suzuki, President
I am pleased to extend my greetings to readers of the Shindengen Group’s CSR Report 2020.
The Shindengen Group is promoting CSR activities through the practice of its management philosophy and the pursuit of its above-stated mission. Our brand logo is designed to represent the Group’s value systems: effectively utilizing energy, considering the natural environment, and contributing to the growth of business and society.
Right now, corporate roles and responsibilities are undergoing radical changes. Rapid technological advancement in such fields as IoT and AI is prompting the creation of new businesses aimed at meeting needs of future generations, a trend that is pushing many corporations to shift their business models. Furthermore, amid a globalizing economic and social environment, they are having to step up their commitment to addressing ESG issues ranging from environmental preservation to human rights protection.
The Shindengen Group identified “Advancing product strategy for sustainable growth” as the guiding management policy of its 15th Medium Term Business Plan (FY2019–2021). In line with this policy, we will enhance the competitiveness of mainstay products while developing growth businesses. Moreover, we will strategically create next-generation products that are a decade ahead. In these ways, we will secure sustainable growth.
In addition, the Group outlined its ESG initiatives in its Medium Term Business Plan in response to the demands of the international community, such as the SDGs. To carry out these initiatives, we unveiled our SDG Material Issues in line with our corporate mission. The Shindengen Group will continue co-creating new value with its stakeholders by promoting business activities from an ESG perspective.
It is my hope that this CSR Report helps facilitate your understanding of the Shindengen Group’s CSR activities, and I would greatly appreciate your feedback.
