Furukawa Electric Co., Ltd. (Head Office: 2-6-4 Otemachi, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo; President: Hideya Moridaira) newly established the “Furukawa Electric Group Purpose” (Japanese and English) in commemoration of the company’s 140th anniversary.


Given the increasing uncertainty for the future, we have set forth the Purpose indicating our group’s reason for being and revised the structure of the Corporate Philosophy with the hope that employees will take pride in working at the group and this will lead to increased engagement at the group as a whole.
When creating the Purpose, we established a “Purpose Project Team” made up mainly of young employees who will form the next generation of leaders and discussed with group employees in Japan and overseas through multiple opportunities for dialogue.

Meaning of “Composing the core of a brighter world” incorporated in the Purpose

The Purpose indicates our group’s reason for being is to create “indispensables” as the core of a better future by honing our technological and problem-solving capabilities since our foundation to approach various social issues and take on the challenges.
Also, while carrying on Furukawa Electric founder Ichibei Furukawa’s desire to “make Japan brighter,” the wording has been revised to reflect the group’s global scale.

Going forward, by promoting awareness of the Purpose, we will increase understanding of the details and meaning among employees and work to foster empathy for the Purpose within the group. At the same time, we will strive to increase engagement and the organization’s ability to execute. In addition, centered on the Purpose, we will promote ESG management and aim to achieve sustainable growth and increased corporate value.
