TAIYO YUDEN's Management Philosophy focuses on "employee well-being," "betterment of local communities" and "responsibility to provide returns to shareholders," and we aim to realize these three principles. Fulfillment of social role, work for public benefit and contribution to the community with a global perspective, as well as sustainable growth of the business, are considered as corporate social responsibility, and I believe these are our corporate mission to accomplish.

With progress of globalization, the relationships between countries and companies become more complicated. As evidenced by the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at the United Nations, social issues are shared and there are mounting expectations with regard to the solving of social issues throughout the world. At the same time, there are growing demands, such as "Environment", "Social" and "Governance" (ESG), from stakeholders for companies to engage in sustainable corporate activities that place emphasis on ESG concerns. TAIYO YUDEN Group promotes activities to solve social issues with recognition that ESG contains business opportunities and risks.

The advanced technologies, such as IoT and AI, have the potential to greatly change society. TAIYO YUDEN Group contributes to solve social issues and build an affluent society through supporting evolution of the advanced technologies based on development and provision of Smart Products. Consequently, TAIYO YUDEN Group enhances both economic value and social value, and sustainably grows into company that enjoys the trust and highest regard from its customers.
