Environmental conservation, improved performance, safety, and legal compliance. Our philosophy, values, and business sense are the driving forces behind each of these concerns. Our aims are the preservation of life, the environment, and alternative energy sources. We use green procurement to advance our research and development and constantly strive to regulate our business activities to reduce our impact on the environment.
All business activities are ultimately dependent upon the blessings of the global environment. At Fujikura Rubber we strive to keep this truth constantly in mind. Our goal is not excessive growth, but rather to develop new business opportunities by fully utilizing our rubber processing and composite technologies, while controlling our environmental impact in order to leave a clean a beautiful environment for the next generation.
We address health and safety issues through a range of activities. Each business location has its own accident prevention strategies aimed at eliminating accidents, based on the annual policies of the Central Safety & Hygiene Committee. They also hold drills for responding to emergencies such as earthquakes, which have increased in frequency recently in Japan, and act in response to social demand for improving the environment.
Our quality policy is one component of our corporate philosophy and is observed by all employees. We endeavor to be a company our customers can trust by delivering products that satisfy their needs. Improving quality is not limited to products. It also applies to improving all aspects of our business processes.
Our technologies began with rubber-coated fabric techniques, and we now have over 100 years of accumulated technical experience in seven business areas. Our corporate brand, Fujikura Composites, embodies this combination of existing technologies to create new ones. "Composite" remains a key word for us as we develop these technologies and create products that our customers can depend on.
One way we reduce our environmental impact, in accordance with our environmental management system, is to give priority to environmentally friendly materials through green procurement.
We are advancing our business while observing all relevant laws and regulations and acting in accordance with our corporate philosophy, strengthening our organizational systems, creating comfortable workplaces, maintaining positive relations with stakeholders, and considering the sustainable development of communities and society.
The Fujikura Spirit, passed on for a century.
The foundation of our CSR ethos was laid down when the company was established, based on the words of our founder's mother: "Become someone useful to others and to society."
