Mid-Term Plan

Announcement on the Rolling Format of the Mid-Term Management Plan

Tokai Carbon Group announced a three-year mid-term management plan “T-2023” for the period from 2021 to 2023 on May 11, 2021. In light of changes in the business environment and our business performance, we have formulated T-2024, the new mid-term management plan for the next three years from 2022 to 2024.

1.Background of the Rolling Format

Since the three-year mid-term management plan “T-2021” was disclosed in February 2019, we have adopted a rolling method in which we revise our plans for the next three years on an annual basis so that we can respond flexibly to changes in the management environment. While we delayed the announcement of T-2023, the previous plan, by three months to May 2021 to determine the impact of the spread of COVID-19 and other factors, we are announcing this T-2024 in February as we have done in the past.
Moreover, amid the rapid progress of global decarbonization efforts, we have set a new long-term vision for 2030, which represents how we envision our future and how we will capture growth opportunities, create customers, and make social contributions as we strive to create a sustainable society. To achieve this long-term vision, we will engage in our activities according to the following basic policies of T-2024.
