Message from CSRO

The Teijin Group leverages its CSR perspective to be “an enterprise that is essential to tomorrow’s society.”

Chief Social Responsibility Officer
Nobuyuki Takakura

Just what is CSR? Teijin has clarified it simply as (1) having a keen understanding of society’s  requirements and expectations, (2) objectively ascertaining our own capabilities and possibilities, (3) identifying opportunities and risks in light of both (1) and (2), and (4) taking opportunities to challenge and dealing with risks to realize sustainable business and social development. We are working to disseminate this awareness of CSR.

We have been looking at social issues alongside the Teijin Group’s strengths to identify our very core priority fields in environmental, social, and governance areas that we should focus on in our medium-term management plan for 2017-2019. While utilizing a CSR perspective, holding numerous dialogues with various stakeholders, and appropriately responding to diverse risks, we contribute to society through our business. By practicing CSR in this way, we will earn society’s credence and approval. That, in turn, will bring pride to us and motivate us for further initiatives. We aim to make this virtuous circle a reality and become “an enterprise that is essential to tomorrow’s society.”

CSR Materiality and SDGs

As a member of global society, the Teijin Group is contributing to achievement of the sustainable development goals (SDGs), which are the goals in 17 fields that all members of the United Nations will tackle by 2030. We refer to the social issues shown by the SDGs in identifying CSR materiality (key issues), and are working to advance CSR on a global level.
