Sustainability Initiatives

Solving Social and Sustainability Issues
Through Our Business

The OMRON Principles represent our unchanging, unshakeable beliefs. Based on these principles, we identified key sustainability issues linked to our VG2.0 medium-term management plan, which we launched in fiscal 2017. These key issues guide us in solving social issues through our business. We are pursuing innovation driven by social needs in four priority business domains, which we believe will emerge as social issues: Factory Automation, Healthcare, and Social Solutions.

  • Factory Automation

    that will enrich the world (automobiles, digital, food/daily commodities,

  • Healthcare
