Material Issue 1Provide Value that Exceeds Customer Expectations and Contribute to Society

Basic Approach and Policy

Today, business corporations are required to solve social issues and improve their corporate value by creating new value for customers and society through business, in addition to continuing with their existing way of doing business.
The Toyo Ink Group has set the three keywords of Life, Communication and Sustainability as its direction for contributing to the enrichment of life and culture into the future in order to contribute to solving social issues through business development in 11 domains. We will also deepen, broaden, and enhance our technology platform, which will enable us to expand our business to a broader range of domains.
Further, we will ensure the provision of product information and quality management, and provide safety and reassurance to customers through various communication activities.
