Approach and Structure for Sustainable Management
The Yamato Group interacts with customers and society for the realization of its management philosophy—namely "Helping enrich our society"—and it has grown. As society faces urgent problems such as climate change, issues related to labor, human rights and inequality, and infectious diseases, we believe that addressing these social issues and striving to solve them is our social responsibility.
To realize the environmental vision, "Connect. Deliver the future via green logistics," and the social vision, "Through co-creation and fair business activities, help create a society that leaves no one behind" laid out in the Yamato Next 100 medium to long-term grand design for management announced in January 2020, we will accelerate sustainability initiatives to achieve sustainable corporate growth.
