Corporate Value

In the 18th Mid-Term Management Plan (April 2014 to March 2017) we declared our aims of reinforcing core businesses, including Imaging and Solutions, and establishing new businesses, which will become the foundation for the future. We have created value for customers, value for shareholders, value for employees, and value for society through our corporate activities.

In addition, we have three value drivers—technological strengths, customer contact capability, and sustainable environmental management—that fuel our business growth, maximizing the values created by corporate activities.
