Kyocera’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Activities

Promoting Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

The Kyocera Group's CSR activities are based on the Kyocera Philosophy, which uses as its decision-making criterion the principle to “Do what is right as a human being.” Through our Kyocera Philosophy, we work to advance our corporate citizenship, build relationships of mutual trust with stakeholders, and aim for sustainable growth. At the same time, we endeavor to contribute to the healthy development of society.

Key Topics in Corporate Citizenship

Measures to Save Energy, Mitigate Climate Change, and Prevent Pollution

The Kyocera Group has adopted aggressive sustainability initiatives, with an emphasis on energy conservation and climate-change mitigation. We have installed rooftop solar power systems and energy-saving equipment at major facilities worldwide, and we have installed “Green Curtains” — vertical gardens that shade windows and walls to reduce air-conditioning requirements – at manufacturing facilities in Japan. Additionally we actively contribute to local community development through biodiversity conservation. In recognition of these efforts, Kyocera received the Japanese Environment Minister's Award for Global Warming Prevention Activities in 2018 for a record ninth consecutive year.

Promoting Diversity Management

Kyocera aims to build a corporate culture that allows each employee to work happily by bringing out the unique talents of diverse individuals. Toward this end, Kyocera engages in various activities including international training, promoting local staff to management positions, and developing systems of support for those raising children and caring for the elderly.
