A Message from the President
As a bridge between Japan and China,
we will take the lead in creating a society
that aims to achieve both economic wealth
and environmental wealth.
HighChem announced its 5th Medium-Term Management Plan at the beginning of the year. In the plan, we reaffirmed the significance of our role as a bridge between Japan and China, creating new value by bridging various gaps, and finding our own value. We have positioned the Medium-Term Management Plan as a step for further growth toward the goal of 100 billion yen sales.
There is a Chinese saying that I am always aware of when conducting business. "Opportunity," "Advantage," and "Good Relationships."
First of all, "Good Relationships" means relationships of trust with customers, partner companies, and employees. The relationships of trust that we have built up with our customers and partner companies over more than 20 years since our founding are truly our greatest assets and the cornerstone of our development today. I cannot thank our business partners enough. In addition, each of our employees takes pride and responsibility in playing a role as a bridge between Japan and China, and their efforts to advance our business day-by-day are the source of our company's growth.
"Opportunity" means the current trends in the world and "Advantage" is the business environment.
Today, our home, the planet Earth, is facing serious challenges such as climate change and marine plastic pollution. Given these circumstances, our goal is to provide solutions to these important issues through the trading and C1 chemical businesses that we have built up over many years. Our new vision is, "We will take the lead in creating a society that aims to achieve both economic wealth and environmental wealth by increasing the efficiency of carbon utilization to deliver cleaner air and reducing marine plastic pollution to deliver cleaner oceans."
We believe that the current situation in the world is an "Opportunity" for us to utilize the "Good Relationships" and "Advantage" that we have built up as tools to further contribution to our society. In this way, we will seek further growth of the company and contribute to a more sustainable society.
I thank you again for your support and for accompanying us on this journey.
