Practicing the KDDI Group Philosophy to achieve sustainable growth and increased corporate value
As a telecommunications operator that provides social infrastructure, KDDI has the important social mission of providing stable communications services on an ongoing basis, 24 hours a day and 365 days a year, regardless of conditions. Furthermore, as a telecommunications operator, our business derives from utilizing radio waves―an important asset shared by all citizens. Accordingly, we recognize that we have the social responsibility to address the issues society faces and seek to resolve them through telecommunications.
Attaining sustainable growth and increased corporate value over the medium to long term is essential to achieving this social mission and social responsibility. Furthermore, we strive to engage in dialogue with all our stakeholders, including customers, shareholders, business partners, employees, and local communities and work in cooperation to proactively address societal issues. In this manner, we aim to contribute to the development of a safe, secure, and truly connected society.
In addition to our corporate credo and mission statement, we have formulated the "KDDI Group Philosophy," which defines perspectives, values, and code of conduct that officers and employees should share. We conduct activities to promote awareness of this philosophy throughout KDDI Group.
By proactively practicing the KDDI Group Philosophy, KDDI aims to achieve sustainable growth and increased corporate value over the medium to long term.
