Teijin Group Corporate Philosophy

1.Enhancing the Quality of Life:

The Teijin Group´s purpose is to enhance the quality of life through a deep insight into human nature and needs, together with the application of our creative abilities.

  • a.
    The term "quality of life" characterizes most of the positive aspects of human life: material well-being, good health and peace of mind; the full variety of joy and satisfaction gained from rewarding work, favorite pursuits and daily human contact; and affection and due respect for all living things.
  • b.
    We believe that the ultimate goal of any enterprise is to help people realize and maintain a high quality of life. We seek to reach this goal by developing creative technologies and by setting and meeting the highest standards of marketing skills and other business strategies.
2.In Harmony with Society:

Our aim is to grow and evolve in harmony with the progress of society, thus justifying the trust of our shareholders, customers and the public at large. To this end, we strive constantly to raise corporate value and place our highest priority on safety and the environment.

  • a.
    An enterprise is but one member of society. Accordingly, we strive to maintain harmony with society and ensure sound growth. We also endeavor to offer innovative products and services and new life style ideas that enhance the quality of life.
  • b.
    In line with our commitment to being fair and open, we maintain an active dialogue with society, enabling us to hear clearly the voice of the public and respond effectively to its needs.
  • c.
    As a member of the global community, we maintain an international outlook. Overseas, we operate with due respect for local customs and concerns and strive to earn the trust of the communities in which we operate.
  • d.
    Enhancing humankind´s quality of life depends directly on responsible care for the environment. We give first priority to this critical task in the development of our products and services as well as in our everyday manufacturing activities.
3.Empowering Our People:

We encourage our employees to achieve self-realization by developing and exercising their abilities to the fullest. We nurture a corporate community with a wide variety of abilities and personalities to foster creative innovation.

  • a.
    We support our people in all their efforts to improve their own quality of life by providing many chances to experience challenging and rewarding work and the joys of achievement.
  • b.
    Among our many management resources (well-trained personnel, capital, facilities, technologies, information, brand, corporate culture, etc.), our people are the most important. We aim to maximize each individual’s full potential through fair and impartial evaluation and treatment.
  • c.
    To maintain the status quo is to accept eventual decline. An enterprise can only grow and evolve through continual creation and innovation. We attach special importance to the development of latent capabilities of those employees who wish to meet the challenges of future possibilities in addition to accomplishing the tasks of today.

Brand Statement

The promise of the Teijin brand is summed up in the resonant statement: "Human Chemistry, Human Solutions." Our promise is to keep delivering real value through the development of chemical technologies that are friendly to both people and the global environment, and through the provision of solutions that society and our customers expect.

It is also important to note that our brand statement refers to "Chemistry," our core Materials Business (advanced fibers & composites and electric materials & performance polymer products), and "Solutions," our Solutions and Service Business (healthcare, products converting and IT) which creates added value for our customers. Finally, when people get along exceptionally well, it’s called "good chemistry." So for the Teijin Group, "Human Chemistry" also expresses how much we value the relationships we have with our customers. The bonds of trust are priceless.
