Embodies Trustworthiness and Creativity
The Nikon Group defines sustainability as contribution to a sustainable society and achievement of sustainable growth for the company through the realization of its Corporate Philosophy of Trustworthiness and Creativity in its business activities. The Nikon Group has identified 12 materialities in the four areas of Business Activity, Environment, Society/Labor, and Governance from the two aspects: Meet society's expectations to win Trust and Contribute to society through Creativity. We also defined respective visions and strategies, developing indicators and goals. We incorporated these indicators and targets into Our Medium-Term Management Plan and fiscal year plan as our sustainability strategy, pursuing these goals as an integral part of our business.
