Corporate Philosophy

Toyobo Group's Corporate Philosophy

Jun-Ri-Soku-Yu ("Adhering to reason leads to prosperity")

We have adopted Jun-Ri-Soku-Yu (順理則裕) as our basic philosophy. Here junri indicates not only "thinking and acting rationally and logically," but also expresses the idea that "reason and ethics form one's basic attitude as a human being, and ethical values must be respected." This motto was a personal maxim of our founder, the Meiji Era industrialist Eiichi Shibusawa, and has been handed down as our company's management philosophy unchanged to the present day.
