ESG Initiatives

Under the management philosophy of “Bridging to a brighter tomorrow, we cherish individuality, cultivate values through innovation and creativity, and commit to a positive and smart future”, Iriso Electronics has been contributing to global efforts on sustainable environment and society and aiming for a steadily growing company with a corporate vision of “striving for a centenary company that creates customer values”.
In 2016, we created this vision at the time of the Company’s 50th anniversary in the belief that the Company would last again for the next 50 years. To survive for more than 100 years, the Company needs to contribute to global environment protection and social problem solving and to keep sincere efforts for building trusting relationships with all stakeholders including employees as well as to win fierce competitions in business. To realize the vision and to drive the further growth of IRISO Electronics, we will make strong efforts on our ESG development as well as on business expansion.
We will have two ESG approaches, “ESG risk management” and “creation of business opportunities by targeting the ES issues“.
