The Toyal Group is developing growth strategies as it moves toward its 100th anniversary in 2031. Growth strategies should consist of not only financial strategies but also strategies designed to enhance our corporate value by, among other things, contributing to the SDGs, i.e. a vision of sustainability that will guide us to growth. At Toyo Aluminum, we are using both top-down and bottom-up approaches to developing a vision of sustainability, where employees actively engage in discussions.
Members of the CSR promotion team and the CSR Promotion Office, made up of employees from different departments and companies across the group, held discussions to develop a sustainability vision statement.
See "CSR REPORT 2018" for details.
We will explore the far edges of the horizon to find new possibilities for aluminium as we continue coming up with innovations that enrich people’s lives.
We will leverage the features and advantages of materials
to promote clean energy.
We will cut CO2 emissions from our operations by 30%. (compared with the 2013 level)
We will work with various stakeholders to build a recycling system
for the entire product life cycle.
We will promote smart factories and smart offices where people from diverse backgrounds can work together and reach their full potential.
In order to integrate CSR activities into business operations, the Toyal Group incorporates Material CSR Issues that have been established and Sustainability Vision aimed at the company’s centennial into the business operations, to promote and develop activities that can contribute to achievement of SDGs. We conducted internal dialogs with responsible persons in headquarters and Group companies, as well as the CSR Promotion Team, to exchange opinions and ideas about “how each headquarters should function” and “promising future markets,” etc., and discuss directions to be taken by respective headquarters.

Many products contributing to SDGs are produced; in the healthcare field, for example, components of defibrillators, medical packing materials, in the food field, water/oil repellant packaging materials (used in yogurt container lids, contributing to reduction of wasted foodstuff); and in the energy field, external materials and positive-electrode materials for electric vehicles, etc.
Our main products include aluminum paste used as raw material for automobile metallic painting, as well as water-based paint used in packaging materials, beverage cans, cellphones, etc. Because water-based paint is free of volatile organic solvent, it can be safely used and easily stored, will not cause harm to human bodies and thus contribute significantly to solving social issues.
The primary operations are performed for photovoltaic power generation deemed as renewable energy. In these business operations directly contributing to solution of social issues, we work on improving power generation efficiency of photovoltaic cells, reducing costs, and expanding installation sites, etc.
Our BtoC operations feature manufacture/sale of aluminium foil and paper containers used in daily necessities in our life, namely, household goods and packaged food products, etc. We can contribute to solving problems of plastic wastes in the sea through our products, and of recycling issues through our supply chains.
This is a direct sales subsidiary in the Toyal Group, and engaged in global sales operations primarily for products of the Toyal Group, and other high-quality items that can contribute to solving social issues.
