Nov. 02, 2020
Tokyo, November 2, 2020 — Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. announced today the establishment of the Kawasaki Group’s new vision statement, describing what the Group envisions becoming in 10 years ― “Group Vision 2030: Trustworthy Solutions for the Future.”
In order to provide solutions for social issues, our Group will focus on three fields; “A Safe and Secure Remotely-Connected Society”, “Near-Future Mobility” and “Energy and Environmental Solutions” and will transform our business structure into a form which promises faster growth in line with environmental changes.
The Group Vision 2030 will indicate the direction to achieve such challenge of the Group, that is to make available — in a timely manner — innovative solutions which accommodate an ever-changing society in order to create a hopeful future, as well as acting outside of organizational and divisional boundaries and taking up challenges to expand the horizons of its potential for further growth.
The following are the three key themes that drive the Group’s efforts to fulfill Group Vision 2030:
Pioneering the technology frontier with our challenger “DNA”
Since our founding, we have always been challengers. Throughout a history studded with world’s-first and Japan’s-first achievements in many sectors, including shipbuilding, rolling stock, and aerospace, we have been leveraging our cutting-edge technologies and fostering a “DNA” characterized by the spirit of pioneering the frontier which draws on our unique perspective. We will continue to respond to the frontier of the new era’ s social challenges, based on that unique perspective, in order to create a hopeful future.
Providing innovative solutions to the problems facing the world
The world is now facing an array of problems, including environmental deterioration, energy challenges, expanding populations, graying societies, natural disasters, and pandemics.
We are committed to providing solutions with new and high added-value to a wide range of customers and society, by concentrating the trustworthy technologies and knowledge that we have been building in order to provide innovative solutions and to speedily accommodate social change.
Becoming a creative challenger that continues to grow by breaking barriers
To provide innovative solutions focused on social challenges, we will continue to be an open-minded, free-thinking, and creative team that goes beyond the boundaries of internal and external organizations and of product/service categories, leveraging our rich diversity. Moreover, we will keep growing as an organization and as individuals by expanding our potential, through boldly taking up challenges in unfamiliar domains and learning from the experience.
The Kawasaki Group positions these key themes as important focuses of its business activities, as well as objectives toward which all Group employees must be working in their operations. By doing so, the Group demonstrates its commitment to accelerating its effort to fulfill Group Vision 2030.
