Casio’s Sustainability Concept
Pursue Sustainable Growth for Both Company and Society
The Casio corporate creed, “Creativity and Contribution,” reflects our founders’ aspiration to give back to society by offering truly innovative products that never existed before.
At Casio, we believe that continuing to put this creed into practice will deliver long-term sustainable growth for both our company and society.
Founded on this philosophy and code of conduct, Casio got its start by developing a groundbreaking electronic calculator. Since the beginning, we have always considered what our social responsibilities are as a manufacturer that provides useful inventions to the world. This is how we define CSR at Casio, and to make it specific, we have identified several issues with large social impact as material issues for Casio.
As part of our management strategy, we established the Casio Medium-Term Priority Strategy for Sustainability, and we are moving ahead by linking those initiatives with our Medium-Term Management Plan. Each business sets specific targets for these plans and strategies and implements them, seeking to achieve sustainable growth for both the company and society.
Casio believes that part of its social responsibility is to pass down the corporate creed, “Creativity and Contribution,” to all of its employees without fail. Casio is determined to ensure that its businesses, which make something from nothing, or go from “0” to “1,” continue to make a consistent contribution to a more sustainable global society.

In pursuing sustainability, Casio is building a system, devising strategies and targets, and using the PDCA cycle.

For Casio, as a corporate group pursuing business development globally, it is extremely important to advance initiatives that are responsive to the expectations of the international community. In accordance with this understanding, Casio has identified material issues in need of prioritization in response to the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 guidelines issued in May 2013.

In 2019, Casio set sustainability goals for each business to address, in line with its Medium-Term Management Plan, and identified which SDGs Casio will seek to contribute to. Currently, Casio is reviewing its sustainability goals, taking into account changes made to its business operating structure in order to deliver on the goals of the new Medium-Term Management Plan.
