Stakeholder Engagement

To understand societal needs and fulfill them, we have improved our communication with stakeholders in order to make decisions based on their opinions.

Stakeholder Purpose Method Results for FY2022

We strive to improve customer satisfaction by providing higher quality products and services.

The Kyocera Group established a customer service office to improve customer satisfaction by promptly responding to any inquiries, comments, or complaints received from customers in a sincere and proper manner. In FY2022, Kyocera received a total of 63,205 inquiries from customers.


We work to build an environment in which all employees can work with vitality based on our Management Rationale: "To provide opportunities for the material and intellectual growth of all our employees, and through our joint efforts, contribute to the advancement of society and humankind."

The Kyocera Group (in Japan) conducts workplace vibrancy surveys with employees to help bolster a sense of dynamism in the workplace.

Annual awards are presented to the most outstanding suppliers of the year (FY2022 event was canceled to reduce COVID-19 risk). In addition, two events were held to exchange opinions on responsible mineral procurement training and human rights due diligence initiatives.

Local communities

In recognition of the fact that companies serve as members of society, we fulfill our responsibility as a corporate citizen to support the development of local communities not only through our business but also through various social contribution activities.

Dialogue with Local Communities
