CSR Initiatives

Corporate Identity

Corporate management and business environments have been undergoing violent changes. It is important that our management and employees have a firm grasp of and promote our raison d'etre to the world so that we can face this transformation without fail and continue to contribute to society.
Kureha's corporate identity is composed of our Corporate Philosophy, which is the backbone of management; our Employee Code of Conduct, which actualizes our philosophy; and our Mission, which steers all of our corporate activities.

Kureha Group Basic Policy on CSR

Our corporate identity is, in itself, our social responsibility; thus, this identity is what makes the Kureha Group Basic Policy on CSR.

As we continue dialogue with our stakeholders, we will put our Corporate Philosophy into practice, working to resolve societal issues through these activities.

Promotion of CSR Activities

In fiscal 2015, we established a CSR Committee under the direct control of the President, with the director of CSR as chairman to oversee and promote CSR activities throughout the Group.

CSR Activities

Increasing efforts are being made to visualize global social issues, such as through the SDGs, and companies are expected to make greater contributions to their solution. Many companies are now making efforts to formulate medium- to long-term strategies to address social issues.
The Kureha Group believes it has an obligation to continually improve its governance and enforce compliance, and to take committed steps with group companies to uphold basic responsibilities in the course of conducting its corporate activities. With this policy at the base, we aim to address new social issues and contribute to social progress by leveraging our technical capabilities and corporate expertise in our areas of strength. This is why we have set and are working on, the following as key CSR activity areas during the period of Kureha's Challenge 2022.
