Since its founding in 1918 as a pioneer in the Japanese carbon industry, Tokai Carbon has pursued the potential of carbon and created products that anticipated the needs of the times. Our product line boasts world-class quality and a large market share, and we have built an overseas network spread across Asia, Europe and North America. By supplying various materials to a wide range of industries including steelmaking, automobiles, semiconductors, and electronic components, we are supporting people's lives in ways that are difficult to see.
Our company’s basic philosophy is to cultivate “Ties of reliability” with our stakeholders, including shareholders, customers, suppliers, local communities, and employees, through our corporate activities. In order to repay their trust and develop sustainable corporate activities, we must confront global environmental and social issues as a concerned party.
SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) were adopted at the United Nations Summit in September 2015, and the public and private sectors have been working together to realize a sustainable, diverse and inclusive society. Amid all this, dealing with ESG (environment, social and governance) has become an important management challenge. In Tokai Carbon’s mid-term management plan T-2021, launched in 2019 to radically evolve our existing CSR activities, we have also prioritized and initiated measures to build an ESG management platform. First, from an ESG perspective, we will identify the important managerial issues (materiality) that should be addressed as a matter of priority, and move steadily forward to resolve them. We will also strive to disclose information on these initiatives more proactively than before.
In order to remain a company that is trusted and loved by all, we will continue to improve our manufacturing technology and quality and contribute through our corporate activities to the realization of a sustainable society.
