As a corporate group engaged in manufacturing, Kuraray Group creates economic and social value through its excellent products and services and provides them to the market.
Maximizing our technology that is rich in originality, we believe that our most fundamental responsibility as a company group is to provide solutions to global social issues through our business activities such as resource saving, energy saving, environmental conservation, and enhancement of quality of living.
All these business activities are undertaken based on compliance (compliance with laws, regulations, and social norms), risk management, and on top of everything all “safety.” Additionally, quality management in manufacturing provides support in creating values.
On the other hand, all company activities are supported through dialogues with stakeholders (shareholders and investors, customers and consumers, local communities, central and local governments, NPOs). The employees, suppliers, and partners, who participate directly in business activities themselves, are also important stakeholders.
Through various opportunities, Kuraray Group will continue to fulfill its CSR through its company activities by further deepening its dialogues and cooperation with the stakeholders.
