Sustainability at Yazaki

Five principles

Yazaki is committed to five principles which make a substantial contribution to the success of our global business:

  • Increase company efficiency and provide value through continuous effort and implementation of new concepts.
  • Uphold legal regulations, respect regional cultures and contribute to economic and social development.
  • Contribute to a prosperous future society through environment and security focussed business.
  • Conduct business openly and fairly, with the goal of co-existence and prosperity.
  • Care for employees by creating a corporate culture that prioritises individuality and teamwork while empowering people's dreams.

Our Values

As a global organisation, Yazaki is involved in many economic and socio-political areas. We place our trust in a value system which combines the traditional with the contemporary but also unites the past with the future. Values are viewed as an interacting and networked system rather than in terms of individual promises to colleagues, customers, partners and stakeholders.

All of Yazaki's actions are based upon:

  • Treating the environment with care
  • Respecting our colleagues, partners and customers in dialogue and interaction
  • Delivering corporate success and job security through profitable growth
  • Commitment to innovation, quality and safety.

We are fully committed to this set of values and will continue to add new values as appropriate, which will translate into long-term stability and mutual prosperity for the positive progress of society. The principles and the underlying values are lived by our employees and form the basis of our company culture.

Our Culture

Yazaki's culture is a blend of different experiences from a wide range of sources, although its roots are firmly planted in Japan. As a global player in the competitive automotive market, we work together within a culture based on corporate responsibility at all levels.

We have made it our corporate objective to achieve business success along with the protection of the environment and socio-economic responsibility. Our thinking is guided by our understanding of our cultural differences, open communications and mutual respect.
