Corporate Sustainability Vision

The Maxell Group has formulated its Corporate Sustainability Vision for contributing to the
Earth 100 years from
now through its mission: "Contribute to a sustainable society by
innovating unique, original technologies."

There are concerns that capitalism that pursues shareholder profits and excessive short-term profits is a driving factor in increasing inequality, worsening environmental issues, and other negative effects. Movements calling for a substantial revision of capitalism, such as stakeholder capitalism*, are gaining traction.

Against this backdrop, the Maxell Group has formulated its Corporate Sustainability Vision, which clearly sets out its position aiming for long-term increase in corporate value emphasizing relationships with diverse stakeholders.

The Corporate Sustainability Department was established in April 2020. Its basic policy is to play a role in promoting the realization of Maxell's mission. In carrying out this basic policy, the department will aim to internally promote two concepts for business activities throughout the Group: "Think about the medium to long term and evaluate (do not succumb to the pursuit of short-term profits)" and "Create social and economic value as well as economic value."
