How does Teijin ensure sustainable growth in shareholder value over the medium to long term?
Teijin has a brand statement of Human Chemistry, Human Solutions.

We believe that medium- and long-term sustainable growth of Teijin's corporate value will be achieved by following triangle business administration—business strategy, corporate governance and corporate social responsibility (CSR) for environmental management and social contribution—in accordance with the above principle.
