Ties of Reliability
Our corporate philosophy is "Ties of Reliability". We believe in the importance of trust between Tokai Carbon and our stakeholders (as represented by customers, shareholders, employees, and society). This idea of mutual reliability, which is based on common values shared with our stakeholders, is the foundation of our continued business and existence.
This concept allows us to provide added value to our stakeholders, thus enabling them to achieve their individual goals. Through this cycle of trust, we will strive to further enhance our ties of reliability.
1. Ability to Create Value
Under our corporate philosophy, we think we first need the ability to create added value from the resources consigned to us for fulfilling our mission. We consider it the foundation of profit-making power and always endeavor to enhance this ability.
We then need fair enterprise management to smoothly continue this circulation of value. We aim at fairness in competition and profit distribution to sustain the circulation of value.
We consider the environment a silent stakeholder. The environment is not only one of our business resources, but it is also where all resources come from and finally return to. We keep in mind that the circulation of value performed by the enterprise is part of the circulation of nature, and aim at harmony of business management with the environment.
We are selling products and are expanding our manufacturing sites around the world. Following it our stakeholders spread across the world. We will hold our guidelines acceptable to the world so that we can circulate value and enhance reliability worldwide.
Tokai Carbon Group will continue pursuing the corporate philosophy following the four guidelines through our unique activities as manufacturer focusing on carbon materials.
