We at the Achilles Group strive to be a company that contributes to building an affluent and comfortable society. To do this, we must continue creating new value for our company, society, and the future. With the keywords of reassurance, health, comfort, fun, and energy conservation, we will continue to improve and evolve our plastic processing technologies built up since our founding to provide customers with products that better support their lives as well as inventive products. We implement an ongoing cycle of improvements to earn the trust and meet the expectations of all of our stakeholders.
Through dialog with stakeholders as a member of society, the Achilles Group strives to expand its activities aimed at helping to solve social problems, and contributes to the sustainable development of society.
In line with this policy, the Achilles Group carries out its business activities while positioning eight issues as Achilles’ Materiality.
Based on the seven core subjects of ISO 26000, recent social issues, and issues that specifically affect our company, we position our high-priority initiatives as our materiality.

The SDGs are a collection of 17 goals and 169 targets adopted internationally by the United Nations in 2015 to be achieved by 2030. The logos placed in the chart on the next page indicate the goals that the Achilles Group is contributing to through the respective initiatives.
In the area of corporate value creation, a shift has begun away from tangible things toward the intangible.
Similarly, the value that Achilles Group provides to society, which derives from the core competencies that we have cultivated through collaboration with our partner companies, is constantly changing in a flexible manner in line with society’s needs.
Currently, when society needs to respond urgently to the issue of climate change, we are also faced with the actualization of transition risks such as instability in the price of petroleum products.
Aligning ourselves with the transition that is taking place, Achilles Group will strive to provide sustainable products and services, with the aim of helping to realize a sustainable, prosperous society for the future.
