The YKK Group is committed to helping build a more sustainable society through its main businesses.
Ever since YKK’s founding, the spiritual pillar of all YKK Group business activities has been the “Cycle of Goodness” YKK Philosophy, which embodies our belief that no one prospers without rendering benefit to others.
An enterprise is an important member of society, and as such it must coexist with other elements of society. The value of its existence will be recognized by the benefits it shares with society. In pursuing our business, YKK has devoted great attention to the way in which we can realize such mutual prosperity—that this can be best achieved by the continual creation of new value through innovative ideas and inventions. This would result in business expansion for the YKK Group, which in turn would bring prosperity to consumers and trading partners, and thus benefit all society.
Every YKK company based in 71 countries and regions around the world shares the “Cycle of Goodness” philosophy and the management principle “YKK seeks corporate value of higher significance.” “Fairness” is the standard on which we base our conduct.
The YKK Group’s Corporate Social Responsibility
We do not take lightly our responsibilities as a good corporate citizen, not only towards society but also in the execution of fair business management. Significant changes are taking place in the environments that surround the YKK Group. Whether in Japan or abroad, it is our duty to respect diversity—of cultures, customs, and viewpoints—and play a role in the development of society through our business activities. The YKK Group is committed to helping build a more sustainable society through its main businesses. We shall achieve this through implementation of the “Cycle of Goodness” YKK philosophy and the management principle, “YKK seeks corporate value of higher significance.”
