As Senior Vice President in charge of CSR Activities, I pledge that the Toray Group will be positioned as a global leader in social responsibility by 2020.

The Toray Group has from the beginning pledged to have a positive impact on society through its business and has made corporate social responsibility one of its highest management priorities, as an integral part of management philosophy.

The Group has formulated CSR Guidelines and a CSR Road Map to guide its active pursuit of social initiatives, which is driven by designated implementation leaders and clear targets. The Group also encourages unique initiatives at the workplace level through “CSR line activities.”

The Group conducted a materiality assessment in fiscal 2015 to identify the issues with the greatest significance to its stakeholders and its business in terms of social responsibility. Moving forward, the Group will move forward with its initiatives based on these issues with materiality, which will be regularly reviewed.

In its global business, the Group will continue to view stakeholder expectations as opportunities for growth, and then take advantage of these by actively addressing social issues and conducting its operations in a manner that brings value to all stakeholders.
