Toray CSR Guidelines were established as a foundation for Toray Group management activities in and outside Japan as well as to facilitate its contributions to the building of a sustainable society. The ten guidelines are implemented via concrete annual plans, also referred to as action programs, established specifically for each guideline and carried out using plan-do-check-act (PDCA) management practices. Such Action programs are flexible to changing times and societal needs, and are revised as necessary.
