At Azbil Corporation, we recognize that companies are important members of society and understand that earning the trust of society is achieved through meeting the expectations that the public has in us. The Group is currently implementing broad-ranging corporate social responsibility (CSR) management to fulfill responsibilities to its stakeholders and society at large. We pursue CSR management from two perspectives.
The first relates to our fundamental CSR activities, specifically, implementing thorough business ethics and legal compliance, strengthening responses to and managing all risks in the business environment, enhancing the workplace, ensuring the safety and security of employees, improving the quality of products and services, and preventing product-related problems. These are the most fundamental responsibilities we must carry out as a member of society. At Azbil Corporation, we believe that there are no shortcuts to earning society’s trust. Combined with resolute initiatives to further strengthen corporate governance, we strive for management that is always fair and honest.
The second perspective is contributing to society through our social contribution activities and through our businesses by leveraging our technological and operational strengths. Rooted in our company culture and spirit, our employees take part in a range of social contribution activities, such as helping to educate the public about the environment and participating in the organization of an environment-friendly international marathon. Furthermore, we are positively contributing to the development of a sustainable society by utilizing our technologies to reduce CO2 emissions as well as spread safety-related business practices. In these ways, we believe that we are meeting society’s expectations.
Based on our Group philosophy of “human-centered automation,” all actions of the Group are centered on a consideration for the environment and a desire to enrich people’s lives. Our CSR management is how we turn philosophy into practice. We work to earn the trust of our stakeholders and all members of society by being a company that meets expectations.
