2031 will mark the 100th anniversary of Toyo Aluminium’s founding. This will also be the year after 2030, which we set as our goal for fulfilling SDGs (sustainable development goals). In addition to contributing to our society by providing products and services that fully satisfy our customers, it is crucial that we strive toward realizing a more sustainable society. I believe SDGs are incredibly effective tools in helping us achieve this goal, and we are working to incorporate them throughout the entire Toyo Aluminium Group. Unless we achieve a sustainable society, we cannot expect to continue our business.
It is my hope that we continue to respond quickly to whatever change comes our way, tirelessly contribute revolutionary, unique, and unparalleled products to the market, and satisfy our stakeholders, starting with our employees, while applying the Toyo Aluminium Group’s unique capabilities and strengths toward addressing and solving the problems facing the world.
Even as we keep SDGs in mind, it is critical that we continue developing innovation as a company, and achieve management that molds our enterprise to match the needs and objectives of our society, and it is for that purpose that we strive to become a business group that will wow the world.
By melding together our management principles of “providing products and services that are environmentally friendly” and “advanced technologies,” we are working to develop and expand sales of eco-friendly products, such as light solar cell modules that work to increase the amount of recyclable energy, lithium-ion battery materials for use in electric cars with small environmental footprint, aluminium pigments for water-based paints, and recyclable paper containers in furtherance of zero-plastic policies. At the production level, we are working toward reducing our usage of energy and raw materials, eliminating our negative impact on the environment, and improving our reputation for trustworthiness in the region.
We at the Foil Headquarters will utilize our company’s unique technological capabilities, while centering ourselves around the philosophy of SDGs, to help realize a sustainable society, in order to secure the prosperity of future generations.
The Foil Headquarters continues its work on the advancement of reductions in CO2 emissions and clean energy practices through the manufacture and sales of exterior materials and cathode materials for lithium-ion batteries, and elimination of food waste through the manufacture and sales of ultra-water resistant, and ultra-oil resistant packaging materials (Toyal Lotus®, Toyal, Ultra Lotus®).
Furthermore, at the production level, we are reducing our energy consumption through efforts such as the introduction of rolling oil recovery devices, and helping to realize a recycling society via VOC processing devices.
The Powder & Paste Headquarters conducts technological development, manufacturing, and sales with a constant focus on SDGs. We pursue our business endeavors with a particular focus on revolutionary technology, preservation of the environment, and mitigating climate change.
We utilize Toyo’s unique technologies in order to advance the development and practical application of aluminium flakes that can even be safely used in water-based paints (paints that do not contaminate the atmosphere), aluminium flakes for use in inks that do not utilize aromatic components (which pollute the water), AlN (aluminium nitride) ceramics that are optimized for use as heat radiating materials due to their incredibly high thermal conductivity, and aluminium alloy powders optimal for use in 3-D printers, one of the most talked-about and revolutionary technologies of our time.
As the name suggests, the Photovoltaic Headquarters specializes in businesses that are directly related to photovoltaic power generation (solar batteries). Our company has been involved with the solar battery industry for over 30 years. Up to now, we have been contributing to the expansion of the industry by providing materials like Toyal Solar® and ALSOLAR®. Recently, we have begun emphasizing the lightweight aspect of our products, and have succeeded in making the Hane® Module, which allows for solar batteries to be installed in places where they historically could not, into a viable product, and we plan to continue our contributions in this area as we move forward.
The Household Products Headquarters will be incorporating the managerial goals of SDGs, and continue designing products to help realize a sustainable society from the day they are made to the day they are done serving their purpose, in addition to their usual provision of usefulness that enriches the daily lives of our customers. We are also working on the development of, and transition from materials we currently use to, materials that neither exacerbate global warming or the pollution of our oceans.
As a member company of the Toyo Group, Toyo Tokai Aluminium Hanbai K.K., and its entire staff, will strive to become a company that can contribute to the fulfillment of SDGs goals, and endeavor to create value that helps alleviate the problems facing the world, primarily through CSR work in collaboration with our stakeholders.
