The times are volatile and moving along in an unpredictable way.
The speed of change in the world is increasing with each passing day, and the cycle of a business model or a company changes constantly compared to the past.
Going forward, it will be crucial to have two perspectives at the same time: while reading ahead of the times, re-examine your way and making corrections flexibly.
Since the company was founded, we have always kept in our mind while running the operation: ‘What is the most important role as a company?’
A company must be a public institution of society.
There are diverse perspectives about the business operation, but I believe it is important for a company to continue to exist, even if the nature of the business changes its form.
This is what we call ‘sustainability’.
A company that chases short-term profits and disappears after a few years cannot be called a ‘public institution of society’.
As importance of compliance become the main focus, companies will have an increasingly major role to play in society.
We will continue to contribute to local communities, both domestically and internationally, and to sow the seeds of business models that will continue to blossom into large flowers.
Please stay tuned for the future of Plenty.
President and CEO Shigemi Omochi
