The Nitto Group Adopts Scheme for Recognizing Products That Contribute to the Environment and/or Human Life

Nitto Denko Corporation(headquarter: Osaka, Japan, President: Hideo Takasaki, hereafter Nitto) has created a new scheme for recognizing products that are friendly to the environment and human life. The Nitto Group publishes the level of contributions that our products and services make to planet Earth and human life, and recognizes those with a particularly high contribution by assigning PlanetFlags or HumanFlags, to embody “co-creating value through innovation,” which is one of our material issues for sustainability.
In addition, the Nitto Group announces that it has recognized the five products as PlanetFlags and HumanFlags based on the scheme.
The Nitto Group has a long history of contributing to the improvement of convenience and the evolvement of the world through customer-oriented innovation. However, going forward, the company’s definition of “customer” will be extended to include not only to the “direct customer” but also to the global environment, human life and society, as the Nitto Group aims to further realize a sustainable environment and society.
The PlanetFlags/HumanFlags scheme clearly defines the type of social contribution the Nitto Group aims for and serves as a mechanism for each employee to practice on a daily basis. By creating products that contribute to the global environment and human life, the Nitto group will solve social issues throughout the supply chain and generate increased corporate value. These labels are also applied in the selection of future projects from the development process stage, to advance our efforts to simultaneously solve social issues and create economic value through business.
