The origin of the Kyocera Group management resides in the Kyocera Philosophy, a philosophy of life based on the real-life experiences and empirical rules of Kazuo Inamori, founder and chairman emeritus of Kyocera Corporation. With "What is the right thing to do as a human being?" as its most essential criterion, the Kyocera Philosophy expounds the significance of commitment to fair management and operation in compliance with the most fundamental human ethical and moral values and social norms.
The Kyocera Group believes that decisions should always be made through reason and with "What is the right thing to do as a human being?" as the basic criteria to achieve compliance with public morals.
The criterion of "What is the right thing to do as a human being?" is based on the fundamental ethical and moral values of the natural goodness of human beings: "Don’t be greedy," "Do not cheat people," "Do not lie," and "Be honest" are teachings we all received from our parents as a child and represent the most basic principles of a human being.
We believe that when making decisions and taking action in daily life, we should resort to the criterion of "What is universally right as a human being" and not the criterion of "What best suits our own convenience."
