Staying Competitive as a Socially Desirable Business Even 100 Years from Now
Electric motors power just about every present-day spinning/moving key mechanism to make our lives easier, more convenient and comfortable. In the meantime, however, they could have a significant impact on the global environment due to their large power consumption, which, some estimate, comprises approximately half of all the power generated in the world.
Over the years, Nidec has contributed to reducing global power consumption and CO2 emissions through the energy efficiency of its motors and related products as the world’s leading comprehensive motor manufacturer. Going forward, we will continue to make a difference by opening up a whole new level of efficiency, enabled through tighter integration of our industry-leading motor-drive expertise with advanced controllability and connectivity. Slowly yet constantly, we are on course to evolve into a “global comprehensive electromechanical device manufacturer” capable of bringing solutions to every global issue a step closer with a sustainability perspective on social needs.
Founder, Chairman and CEO
Our company is currently on the verge of riding a great wave of technological innovation in five areas: “automotive electrification,” “expansion robot applications,” “home appliances driven by brushless DC motors,” “manpower-saving in agriculture and logistics,” and “next-generation technology stemming from 5G communications.” Strong expectations are placed on these areas as promising growing markets that contribute to the resolution of various global issues, including CO2 emissions, traffic accidents, and population aging. Hopefully, elemental technologies we have cultivated thus far will serve as a gateway to viable solutions to these sustainability challenges posed by ever-changing environmental and social dynamics.
Aiming to become a leading global company, we will actively support the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set by the United Nations as global goals toward 2030. Sticking to the company’s business attitude of “Do what’s expected, as expected, from a higher perspective before anyone else until it is completed,” we will work to meet the expectations of everyone who supports us.
