IDEC continues to take on the challenges of contributing toward a safe and sustainable society while striving to become a truly global company.
Having celebrated its 70th anniversary in March 2017, IDEC added the APEM Group headquartered in France to the IDEC Group, changing the geographic revenue structure and transitioning into a global business. Now, more than 50% of its Group-wide revenue is generated outside of Japan. To pursue sustainable growth on a global scale, we are advancing toward our 100th anniversary and beyond with the spirit of taking on challenges, being a team player, and encouraging self-development while striving for constant improvement. This is essential because we believe that no company can enjoy success in the future if it remains satisfi¬ed with what it does in the present.
As part of our transformation strategy, we established the CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) Committee in April 2018. To further promote our CSR activities as a participant in the United Nations Global Compact, we have adopted Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). To achieve these SDGs, the CSR Committee is now leading our efforts to solve social issues through our business activities. We believe that by doing so we will increase corporate value.
The IDEC Group is committed to taking an active part in building a safe and sustainable society.
