As we head towards 2031, which will be the 100th anniversary of the establishment of our company, the Toyal Group will be unshaken in its stance of working to contribute to a sustainable society. We will steadily implement our action plan for CSR activities and contribute to the solution of social issues through our business activities.
The Toyal Group will continue to respond to requests from the society of the future by working under the key phrases of “the expansion of materials,” “shifting from things to experiences” and “global expansion.” We will fully consider what we can contribute to the 17 goals of the SDGs and we will propose solutions by leveraging our core competencies, unique ideas and unbeatable development capabilities and actively building partnerships.
We believe that environmental issues are one of the most important issues to be solved. It is said that “aluminium is a can of electricity,” because it has the issue that its production process consumes enormous amounts of energy and emits enormous amounts of CO2. This is an issue that must be addressed by the entire aluminium industry and we are working to contribute to CO2 reduction throughout the value chain.
In order for the Toyal Group to continue to create new value, including by contributing to the SDGs and resolving environmental issues, it is necessary for the Group to engage in dialogue and cooperation with a variety of stakeholders.
In that process, one priority is to improve employee satisfaction. I am confident that if a company is worth working for, then the employees will have pride in their own work and the result will be the improvement of the company’s performance. For this reason, in fiscal 2020 we will launch a project to foster self-directed human resources.
In this year in particular, we will use the situation of the new coronavirus infection as the first step toward new work style reforms. We will make every employee more autonomous in order to respond to the various changes that will no doubt occur in the business environment from now on.
The Toyal Group will also aim to respond to requests from the society of the future, to be a company that is needed by society and achieves sustainable growth.
Create the future, I will create it.
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 will continue its work on the advancement of reductions in CO2 emissions and clean energy practices through exterior materials and cathode materials for lithium-ion batteries, the elimination of food waste through ultra-water resistant, and ultra-oil resistant packaging materials (Toyal Lotus®, Toyal・Ultra Lotus®), and the promotion of health and welfare with aluminium foil for PCR testing and medicine packaging materials that prevent accidental ingestion by children but are easily opened by seniors (child-resistant and senior friendly (CRSF) packaging).
Furthermore, at the production level, we will reduce our energy consumption through efforts such as the introduction of rolling oil recovery devices, and help to realize a recycling society via VOC processing devices.
The Powder & Paste Headquarters will conduct technological development, manufacturing, and sales with a constant focus on SDGs. We will pursue our business endeavors with a particular focus on revolutionary technology, preservation of the environment, and mitigating climate change. We will utilize Toyo’s unique technologies in order to advance the development and practical application of products such as 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), and AlN (aluminium nitride) ceramics that are optimized for use as heat radiating materials due to their incredibly high thermal conductivity. This also applies to aluminium alloy powders optimal for use in 3-D printers, which are one of the most talked-about and revolutionary technologies of our time, and ALSOLAR® paste containing aluminium powder, as a material that increases the efficiency of solar cells.
The Household Products Headquarters will be incorporating the managerial goals of SDGs, and continue designing products that not only provide usefulness and comfort, but also consider the entire product life cycle from the time they are created to the end of their life in order to help realize a sustainable society. We are also working on the development of materials with consideration of issues such as global warming and the pollution of our oceans, and to transition to materials that are superior to the current ones.
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.
