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."
Based on its basic management policy of MVVSS, Maxell will realize its VISION of "Create Maximum Excellence for employees, customers, and society by leveraging unique Analog Core Technologies"by solving social issues through its businesses.
To achieve this, we believe it is important to identify important issues that Maxell should focus on, set specific initiatives and targets in its medium- to long-term strategy, and resolve them through its businesses.
The Corporate Sustainability Department works in collaboration with business divisions, group companies
and corporate divisions.
Liaison meetings are held regularly to promote sustainability measures while sharing direction.
