In the future, we seek to expand our business in the automotive field, which is rapidly growing in Southeast Asia, while also focusing on developing new products and materials for the fields of energy, agriculture, and food products. Within the energy field, we particularly wish to work on products that reduce environmental impact and generate solar power.

We began handling biomass materials to be used for power generation fuel for Japanese electric power companies as part of our “expansion of products that reduce environmental impact,” a key initiative in our medium-term business plan, NC2023. In addition, we linked the manufacturing and processing functions of Group companies in Japan and overseas, including those in Thailand, to develop garbage bags composed of biomass materials. As a shosha that handles resin products, we will continue developing environmentally friendly commercial products, while also helping to bring about a sustainable society by launching sales activities in India in the solar power generation business.
