Companies have a responsibility to build a sustainable society. At the Gunze Group, we also delve into issues we should address over the medium to long term from the perspective of sustainable management, while aiming to strategically link them to our business activities. As such, we have been committed to dealing with these important issues during the second phase of our medium-term management plan, “CAN20” (FY2017 - FY2021). Going forward, we will focus more on sustainability in promoting the plan.
