Kuraray Co., Ltd.

Kuraray Co., Ltd. (Head Office: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo; President: Masaaki Ito; hereinafter “Kuraray”) hereby announces that it has published the Kuraray Report 2018 (A4 size, 50 pages, full color).

Until 2017, Kuraray disclosed financial and non-financial information via separately issued annual and CSR reports. However, from 2018 the Company will publish integrated reports, thereby securing a more robust communication tool better suited to keeping stakeholders informed of the Kuraray Group’s various new value creation initiatives executed over the medium to long term.
