Message from the President

Since our establishment in 1920, we have been developing our business activities to provide new value to society through chemistry with the support of stakeholders and contribute to the development of society.

Various issues such as environmental problems like climate change and resource depletion, aging and labor shortages in advanced countries, and food problems due to population growth centered on developing countries have become apparent with the development of the economy and society. To solve these common global issues, it is urgent to work on decarbonization, technological innovation, work style reform, food security and sustainable agriculture, etc. from a long-term perspective such as ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) and SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals).

To contribute to solving these issues, the Nippon Soda Group established our long-term vision, Brilliance through Chemistry 2030 (FY 2021-FY 2030) in 2020. In the previous medium-term management plan (FY 2021-FY 2023), we were able to significantly exceed all numerical targets by expanding growth driver businesses, executing the liquidation of unprofitable businesses and portfolio review.
The new medium-term management plan Brilliance through Chemistry Stage II (FY 2024-FY 2026), which started in FY 2024, will continue to expand high-value-added businesses and promote structural reforms and growth investments that emphasize return on investment, advancing the transformation to a highly efficient business structure. In addition, we will steadily implement our new medium-term action plan, including the Research Technology Strategy Brilliance through Chemistry 2030, the human capital management vision Make Employees Brilliant, and the DX vision Brilliance through Digitalization, aiming to achieve our long-term vision Brilliance through Chemistry 2030.

To achieve sustainable growth and meet the expectations of next generations, the Nippon Soda Group is promoting sustainability management through CSR Activities to Protect Corporate Value and CSR Activities to Improve Corporate Value. Our mission is to continue to grow as a chemical company that supports new social innovation through the creation of innovative technologies and products, leveraging the foundation of our Responsible Care activities, and contribute to the realization and development of a sustainable society. While inheriting the sincere and honest corporate culture that Nippon Soda has built up, we will make every effort to make use of the power of chemistry and create new value.

We look forward to your continued support for the further growth of the Nippon Soda Group.
