SANYO : http://www.sanyo-shokai.co.jp/csr

‘think.sanyo’ is the fundamental CSR policy that portrays the three corporate pillars; ‘truth, virtue,
beauty’. CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) in one important aspect of companies all over the world that merits attention.
Companies respond to the desires of consumers by creating products and services to fulfill their needs.
The profit they make is divided amongst employees, shareholders and the community through employment and dividends,
while the company strives to meet new demands from consumers.
In this respect it could be said that real CSR should be good, down-to-earth corporate practice itself,
in other words, the basis of economic activity. At Sanyo, we want to share this understanding of CSR with all our staff,
and everyone we interact with. Don’t be satisfied with meeting current demand, but look further, listen harder,
think more and act to create an ideal CSR structure. That is why we chose ‘think’. -‘think.sanyo’.
