Pursuing CSR Initiatives to Position the Toray Group as an Enterprise of High Value to All Stakeholders

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 set targets based on its CSR Guidelines in its CSR Road Map designed to systematically drive group-wide initiatives in the areas of corporate ethics, legal compliance, environmental preservation, human rights, human resource development, and social contribution. Social issues have been diversifying in recent years. In response, the Toray Group aims to play an important role in securing sustainable growth and solving global challenges through its businesses, and it is committed to be an enterprise of high value to all stakeholders.

In November 2017, we disclosed the inappropriate overwriting of product quality data by a Toray subsidiary. In response to this incident, the Toray Group is redoubling its efforts to verify product safety and quality, which we see as one of the most critical of our social responsibilities. Every Toray Group executive and employee will act fairly and with a strong sense of ethics and responsibility to be worthy of the trust and meet the expectations of society.
