Report from the Chief CSR Officer
As Chief CSR Officer, I make every effort to promote systematic, organization-wide CSR initiatives in order to ensure the sustainable development of Toray Group and society as a whole.
Senior Vice President,
Chief CSR Officer,
Toray Industries, Inc.
Toray Group has from the beginning lived up to the management principle of “realizing that corporations are public institutions of society and contributing to society through our business.” In 2020, this and other management principles, which we have upheld since the beginning, were organized in the form of the Toray Philosophy.
Toray Group implements its management strategies and CSR initiatives in an integrated manner, striving to realize the corporate philosophy positioned at the highest tier of the Toray Philosophy, and works to ensure the sustainable development of Toray Group and help build a sustainable world.
Toray Group’s CSR Guidelines, our guiding principles for delivering on our social responsibilities, lay out such broad themes as: corporate governance; ethics and compliance; safety, accident prevention, and environmental preservation; human rights promotion and human resources development. An implementation leader is assigned for each guideline theme.
Based on the guidelines, we establish a three-year CSR Roadmap mandating specific initiatives and KPIs. We implement all CSR initiatives systematically using the plan-do-check-action (PDCA) cycle. In September 2020, we announced the CSR Roadmap 2022, which covers fiscal 2020–2022. We make every effort to promote systematic, organization-wide CSR initiatives in order to live up to our corporate philosophy and ensure the sustainable development of Toray Group and society as a whole.
