Kyocera Corporation has published its 2021 Integrated Report, which summarizes its medium- to long-term sustainable growth strategies based on environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria.
The publication is now available on the company’s global website.
Published annually, the Integrated Report is intended to deepen stakeholder understanding of Kyocera’s worldwide effort to operate in ways that serve societal needs.
In the 2021 edition, Tanimoto shares a mission statement the company adopted as a theme for its current fiscal year: “Let’s recognize the drastic changes in our environment as opportunities for innovation and exert our spirit of challenge aggressively to create a brand-new future.”
The report delineates Kyocera’s newly restructured organization, in which 16 product lines were consolidated in April 2021 into three main business segments: Core Components, Electronic Components, and Solutions.
The objective, outlined in the report, is to enable Kyocera to integrate its diverse technologies and business assets in new ways that address emerging needs through innovative products and services, thereby increasing the company’s value to society.
The report also includes Kyocera’s climate countermeasures, which consider multiple scenarios based on recommendations from the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), as well as sustainability information on communications devices and information equipment relating to the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) Index.
