Yokohama Rubber established its corporate philosophy in 1992. It consists of the Basic Philosophy, Management Policies, Action Guidelines and Corporate Slogan. The Basic Philosophy embodies the types of business where Yokohama Rubber commits itself in all activities. The Management Policies outline basic administrative principles for upper-level management to commit themselves to. The Action Guidelines are the code of conduct for each employee to comply with.
The Founding Spirit
Yokohama Rubber still maintains the cautionary tale by Suekichi Nakagawa, who was president at the time of the inauguration of our Yokohama Plant (located in Tsurumi-ku, Yokohama City) in 1929 as our Founding Spirit. This tale comprises the balancing of both sociality and economic efficiency; it still greatly relates to today’s notion of CSR management.
