Concept of Sustainability

We are committed to "living a life that is conscious of the improvement and conservation of the global environment.We believe that enjoying and utilizing the positive value of sports in this context will lead to the realization of a rich life".
Our mid- to long-term basic policy is to support the practice and spread of this concept and contribute to the creation of a prosperous society and global environment, thereby achieving sustainable growth.

In order to make the management strategy based on this basic policy more effective, we have established a "Sustainability Committee" to reflect important issues in the management strategy and to carry out continuous deliberation and monitoring.

Our three key sustainability issues

Based on our past contributions to society and the environment, we have analyzed and examined our business activities, the environment surrounding our business activities, and our stakeholders' perspectives, and have established three important issues to be addressed in the future, as well as strengthening corporate governance.
