Whyit matters

Under the 2021 Mid-term Management Plan that aims to enhance social, economic, and environmental value through the Social Innovation Business, we are actively promoting social contribution activities that will help create social and environmental value and contribute to the sustainable development of both society and business.
Based on the belief that we, as a company aiming to resolve social issues through innovation, have an important mission to foster not only our human capital but also those who will contribute to society in the field of science and technology more broadly, our focus in recent years has been on activities related to STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) education, which has gained attention as a tool for fostering human capital capable of using cutting-edge technologies to enhance their creativity, expressivity, and problem-solving skills.
As a global company, we also support volunteer activity among employees, because it is essential for employees to actively volunteer their time to address local issues and needs if we are to build trust with local communities and grow together with them as a good corporate citizen.
