Message from Senior Vice President

Tatsuya Yamagata

Senior Vice President,

Global Integration Headquarters

and EHS Executive

As Senior Vice President of Global Integration Headquarters, I am leading the Takasago Sustainability Team. The team consists of the following 5 functions: EHS, Human Resources, Procurement, R&D, and Quality Assurance.


In 2008, EHS100 was launched as a key component of the Takasago Global Plan, which is running towards 2020 – the year of our Centennial. Our EHS100 represents the group’s corporate sustainability plan and embodies key policies and issues of social responsibilities and basic human rights. The items listed in the plan include but are not limited to key targets such as a 20% reduction of CO2 emission by 2020 (using 2010 as the base year), establishment of the guidelines of our green procurement policy, promotion of diversity and inclusion and many others. For over these nine years, each of our teams has been making strenuous efforts to tackle those issues and achieve objectives set every three years. Takasago Sustainability Team has been strictly monitoring on a regular basis the progress on all of these issues we are committed to address.


In June 2017, Takasago participated in the UN Global Compact. We align the strategies and operations with the global initiatives. In conducting the corporate sustainability at a global level, it is vital to share values and visions in the entire Takasago group and establish a culture of integrity within us. With this integrity, we will develop an even more comprehensive approach to achieve our goals as well as meet the expectations of our stakeholders worldwide. This will lead to our long term sustainable growth and maximize the corporate value.
