CSR Charter & Action Guidelines

CSR Charter

Since its establishment, the Toyo Ink Group has sought to create new lifestyles that help together with customers, employees, and everyone who supports society through our products and services as a manufacturing company. We have always given top priority to gaining trust and confidence.

We now feel the need to rediscover our identity as a corporate group built around chemical manufacturing that exerts a very significant impact on society. Based on this understanding, we strive to establish and sustain good relationships with all stakeholders more than ever before. We believe that producing, enhancing, and providing our tangible and intangible value by analyzing and evaluating our business activities once again and practicing well-balanced management from the perspectives of people, society, the economy and the environment is an important task in fulfilling our social responsibilities.

The Toyo Ink Group will continue further to engage in free and fair business activities and will strive for management that will pave the way for sustainable growth into the future.
