Contributing to realize the society in which we prioritize spiritual wealth over material wealth for future generations
A society that emphasizes spiritual richness places high values on intangible capital that cannot be expressed in numbers such as wisdom, trust, and empathy rather than visible capital such as sales, capital, and GDP.
In recent years, we see the emergence of new trends in values that are different from the traditional value of capitalism. The "sustainability" in economic activities is one of the major topics of such trends. At the turning point of this era, our mission is to build universal value, that is intangible capital, in the connections between people and between people and society, and contribute to create a sustainable society of the next generation.
