Basic values and policies for initiatives towards circular economy

Teijin Frontier Co., Ltd., is the core company of Teijin Group’s Fibers & Products Converting Business Group, and has a wide range of value chain from research and development to manufacturing and trading company functions. Our corporate philosophy is, "We always create new values that contribute to a healthy environment and a prosperous future." We renewed our environmental guidelines in 2020 and promote our business activities under the environmental strategy "THINK ECO".

Market opportunities and our strengths in circular business

We have a corporate message that "Life Evolves with Fibers”. In all aspects of people's lives, "fibers" are utilized, and we believe that it is the value of our existence as a company to evolve people's lives by creating "fibers". Or strength is that we have two functions as a manufacturer / trading company in a wide range of applications from clothing to industrial materials. We can provide solutions that meet the needs of various customers with the comprehensive strength of information, creation, and manufacturing by utilizing these two functions. Through the environmental strategy "THINK ECO", we aim to become a "company that supports the society of the future" and evolve our lives through the creation of manufacturing and systems that are friendly to the global environment.

Our environmental strategy "THINK ECO" has set the following three priority goals.

"Committed to the use of environment-friendly materials." "Committed to maintaining the purity of our oceans and atmosphere." "Committed to an energy-efficient lifestyle." By providing various materials and products by utilizing our unique technologies, we aim to achieve our environmental strategic goals.
