CSR: Message from the Chairman
We are aware of social responsibility elements
in sports and will continue taking our part
in achieving a healthier, more cohesive society.
Tokyo Olympics is set to take place two years from now in 2020, and prior year will be the 2019 Rugby World Cup Japan. These events have led people increasingly interested in sports. And sports has taken a bigger role in social responsibility in conjunction with such events that we feel more responsible not only for its environmental impacts but also for social relations and the economic sustainability.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the United Nations in 2015 now serve as a guidepost for social responsibility at many companies. We believe that no matter how small, our effort applying these goals in sports and achieving each goals one at a time, we will contribute to the 17 SDGs and recieve reciprocal effects. Furthermore, we believe that sustainable social contributions through sports will lead to a more cohesive society.
We stand by people who keep challenging themselves for the next step. We aspire next generation leaders through sports for the future. We support handicap sports to seek new possibilities in sports. We thrive for an environment, where the community and sports coexist, so we can foster rich and healthy lifestyle for people. Our strong belief in the power of sports and our love for it, along with our motto “Sports First,” are the fuel that keeps us inspired to continue our social contributions.
“Fostering a healthy, meaningful life with sports” is our corporate philosophy. Under our motto “Sports Frist,” we support all those who play, watch, and cheer sports, no matter handicapped or not; by cultivating a healthy and cohesive society where everyone havs equal opportunities to enjoy sports.
