EXEDY Group's Sustainability Activities
Since the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by the United Nations in 2015, there have been growing expectations for companies to resolve social issues.
Up to now, under the corporate philosophy of "Creation of Fulfillment (for our customers, society and our employees)", the EXEDY Group has been working on the development of energy-saving products, contribution to local communities, and promotion of diversity as CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) activities. In April 2020, we placed the SDGs as one of the seven pillars of our policy statement and are accelerating our activities on four materialities (priority issues).
As a result of these efforts, in June 2021, EXEDY was selected as a constituent for FTSE Blossom Japan Index, a leading index for ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) investment.
In order to further evolve these activities, we have recently renamed our CSR activities to "Sustainability Activities" and formulated a 2050 long-term vision, long-term goals, and accompanying slogan. In particular, with regard to the international challenge of "prevention of global warming", we will promote energy-saving activities, introduce renewable energy, and develop Next-Generation Electric Products and Future Products, with the goal of achieving carbon neutrality (virtually zero emissions of greenhouse gases) by 2050. The slogan "Drive our future." expresses our will to move the future by ourselves. All members of the EXEDY Group share this mind, and we will continue to create "fulfillment for all" through our sustainability activities.
