CSR

DENSO takes its corporate responsibility very seriously

CSR

DENSO’s mission states that as a Company we should be “contributing to a better world by creating value together with a vision for the future.” In 2004 we adopted DENSO Vision 2015, a long-term management vision, that guides our efforts in putting this philosophy into practice. This vision also complements our aim of building a sustainable society.

Cooperating, collaborating and sharing values with our many stakeholders are key to achieving this vision. We work to demonstrate corporate behaviour that earns the trust and support of society.

Throughout our global operations we adopted the DENSO Group Declaration of Corporate Behaviour in April 2006, making clear our responsibility to stakeholders. We have placed corporate social responsibility (CSR) at the core of our management values, aiming to help build a sustainable society through our business activities.

Our CSR philosophy includes corporate governance, risk management, corporate behaviour, compliance, information security and communication and is structured around three key areas:

Environmental preservation

DENSO steadily promotes initiatives based on our long-term vision by designating environmental issues as major management priorities. We are working to our medium term DENSO EcoVision 2015 environmental action programme which sets out four areas in which we concentrate our efforts: Eco Products, Eco Management, Eco Factories and Eco Friendly.

Corporate citizenship

We aim to be a good corporate citizen: a company that is trusted and supported by global and local communities. We contribute to society by providing products and services that promote the well-being of people. As a good corporate citizen, DENSO resolves to tackle social problems from a wide range of perspectives for better living and a more affluent society. Through these activities, DENSO aims to be a company with a broader social presence.

Respecting our associates

When employees are fulfilled professionally and personally, companies grow. In DENSO we strive to create an environment in which our associates in different countries can work together to contribute to DENSO’s business goals to the best of their ability. Our Human Resource Management Philosophy provides a global expression of our responsibility to our employees in the form of management practices that value people.
