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

Basic Approach and Policy

With globalization and the evolution of technology proceeding at an unprecedented pace, our lives, industries, and businesses are also changing at an unimaginable speed due to the COVID-19 pandemic in addition to the development of IoT, big data, AI and other technologies. To “Provide Value that Exceeds Customer Expectations and Contribute to Society” in this new era, it is important to understand the social issues faced by consumers and society, including the issues related to the SDGs, and to continue to propose effective solutions to the issues.
We believe that, to propose these solutions, it is essential to pursue the possibilities of the unique technologies we have cultivated to date, expand our technological base, and acquire technologies in new areas, to enable our products and services to evolve into new ones which help solve social issues.
The Toyo Ink Group will contribute to solving social issues, including the issues related to the SDGs, through its businesses with a focus on the priority areas of development established in the SIC-II medium-term management plan that began in 2021. In addition, we will provide safety and security to customers by ensuring that product information is provided and that product quality is thoroughly controlled and through an array of communication activities.
