Message from the President

Toshi Funaki

By creating an optimum environment for humans and machines, we will contribute to solving diversified societal challenges and aim for sustainable growth.

Since its establishment in 1945, IDEC has been providing a wide range of products and services to society. The IDEC Way, a new philosophy that was established in 2019, advocates the Vision “Pioneer the new norm for a safer and sustainable world.” This envisioned ideal incorporates our determination to become a pioneer of tomorrow’s new standards through our role in helping shape the future of manufacturing and its potential, and our aim at realizing a safer, sustainable society that brings happiness and ANSHIN for all.

We are making various efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by solving societal challenges through our business activities. We joined the United Nations Global Compact in 2009, started undertaking activities based on its Ten Principles, and established a CSR Committee in April 2018. We are promoting continuous CSR activities that focus not only on the areas of Environment (E), Social (S), and Governance (G), but also IDEC Group’s two core elements – Safety (Sa) and Quality (Q).

In January 2018, IDEC became the first company in Japan to register with Vision Zero, a global campaign launched by the International Social Security Association (ISSA), an ILO (International Labor
Organization) organization and also, a specialized organization of the United Nations. The Vision Zero campaign, spearheaded by top management, is described as an approach to pursue corporate safety, health, and well-being.
Since IDEC’s founding, as a company that develops and provides products that protect the lives of people, we have promoted safety and ANSHIN aimed at the creation of a safe and comfortable environment in the global community. At the same time, we have been makingefforts to improve the well-being of all people both inside and outside our company.

*1 ANSHIN: a sense of trust and assurance without any fear or stress
*2 Well-being is a concept that means that individuals are ensured of their rights and self-realization and are in good physical, mental, and social condition. (Source: Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare Website)
