The CSR that Nidec Aims to Achieve

The CSR That We Seek to Pursue

Contributing to the World by Making Products That Spin and Move

From Our CSR Officer

The Nidec Group aims to achieve its net sales target of two trillion yen in FY 2020 and 10 trillion yen in FY 2030. We recognize again that with the expansion of our business, we should assume greater corporate social responsibility.
Globally, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted by the United Nations in September 2015 with the aim of realizing a sustainable society. In December of the same year, the Paris Agreement, which aims to achieve a significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions to combat climate change, was also adopted. Thus, the international community has drastically changed its direction toward creating a sustainable society, where our future generations in 100 years’ time can live comfortably in a safe environment, free from the harmful effects of our current lives. As a member of the global community, the Nidec Group, which has approximately 100,000 employees across the world and supplies motors for every product, should fulfill its social responsibility. That is exactly why we need to be actively engaged in activities toward achieving the SDGs and in efforts to reduce environmental burdens based on the Paris Agreement. With this in mind, we will conduct business activities through which individual employees can support the future development of society, considering what they can do through their work toward these goals.

What Shapes Our CSR

Since its foundation in 1973, Nidec has been engaged in business with the following mission statement as the basis of its business management: “Contribute to the development of society and the welfare of the general public around the world by supplying the highest quality products with our sincere and enthusiastic dedication to the trinity of technology, expertise, and modern science,” and “Promote the prosperity of our society, our company, and all of our employees.”
In 2008, we established three basic management creeds and the CSR Charter. The basic management creed states three principles: “Employment stability based on sustainable business growth,” “Available supply of the highest quality, indispensable, and widely desired products for the common good of all,” and “Pursuit of the top leader position in each of the company's chosen paths.”
We will implement the following three actions according to the spirits of the mission statement and the three basic management creeds: 1) social contribution through business activities, 2) sincere business management, and 3) social contribution through non-business activities.
Through these actions, we hope to contribute to creating a society where people can live comfortably even 100 years from now, and to stay competitive as a socially desirable business even at that time.
