Following our founder’s footsteps

Responsible and ethical business that is mindful of society's interests is in our DNA. OMRON's founder, Kazuma Tateisi, was deeply dedicated to societal issues and giving back to the communities in which a corporation operated.

Through our ESG performance, we are diligently fulfilling our corporate mission “to improve lives and contribute to a better society.” This symbolizes our commitment to improving the quality of life of our employees, raising the standard of living of people around the world, and our determination to give something back to the public.

Plan of action

We demonstrate our ESG commitment through global financial and non-financial targets that are in line with our Shaping the Future 2030 (SF 2030) Vision. SF2030 covers a nine-year period, which is divided into three stages with separate medium-term management plans. We are currently in the SF 1st Stage, which spans from FY22 to FY24. Key initiatives under SF 1st Stage include:

  • Reduce Scope 1 & 2 GHG emissions by 53% vs. FY2016.
  • Achieve Carbon Zero at all 76 sites in Japan.
  • 100% participation by global managers in management training to effectively capitalize on the capabilities of diverse human resources.

All initiatives towards our global financial and non-financial targets are tracked and their performance is published in our annual Integrated Reports.
