  • Those who build bridges learn from the past, give thought to the future and create new values. 
    They determine what should be done today, and take action immediately.
  • Those who build bridges find their own and the world's happiness beyond all sweat and tears.
    To achieve this, they absorb knowledge, seek self-improvement, and do everything possible to accomplish the work in front of them.
  • Those who build bridges take on challenges bigger than themselves.
    They humbly admit their shortcomings and continue to grow by facing the challenges of creation.
  • Those who build bridges cultivate the best balance between reality and ideal.
    They realize their client's wishes, as well as their own and their fellow's.
  • Those who build bridges create bonds among people.
    They have faith in fellows during difficult times, smile with hope, and never forget emotional movement and appreciation.

Founders message

Our goal is to realize a "Sustainability Revolution."

This revolution targets more than just solving environmental issues, but to give a positive change to economic gaps and poverty.   "Sustainability Revolution" is about realizing a sustainable future, in which the next generation can live peacefully and prosper on our beautiful planet.   Agricultural, industrial, and digital revolutions, that began in the latter half of the 20th century have changed human life. There has always been new value creation and innovation, that has enabled rapid development.   We will continue to drive innovation globally with "Technology x System x Values," and take on the challenge of realizing a "Sustainability Revolution."
