Top Commitment


JVCKENWOOD believes the achievement of SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) is a top-priority management issue. We will contribute to solving social issues through our business and respond to the expectations of all of our stakeholders by providing products and services that take advantage of our strengths based on our Corporate Vision of “Creating excitement and peace of mind for the people of the world”.


VISION 2023

The business environment surrounding our company is changing more quickly than anyone could have expected. Corporate management is required to take the perspective of ESG and SDGs toward achieving a sustainable society in line with the creation of new business models brought about by digital transformation (DX) that utilize new technologies such as AI and IoT. The pace of these changes has accelerated suddenly as a result of the dramatic shifts in our society and lifestyles caused by COVID-19. Corporations will be required to further create new values and strengthen their corporate structures to respond to the fluctuating business environment from here on. It is against this background that our company has formulated the New Medium-Term Management Plan VISION 2023, with “Change for Growth” as its basic strategy. We aim to evolve our sustainability management and ESG by focusing on both "Change" to rebuild the revenue base of our existing businesses and "growth" to expand our growth businesses by creating new products and new businesses. For this reason, we will approach to profitable growth based on SDG strategic themes and strengthen governance and further improve the effectiveness of the Board of Directors.



Sustainability management initiatives

Under VISION 2023, we will deepen our commitment to sustainability management as a priority theme, with a focus on achieving profitable growth and solving social issues globally. In promoting sustainability management, we have identified eight social issues— Society, Labor, Environment, Quality, Economy, Safety, Governance and Value Creation—which are not only closely related to our business, but for which we also feel the company can contribute toward finding solutions. For these eight social issues, we are identifying materiality and setting KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) for managing the progress of problem-solving initiatives while considering how they can be linked to VISION 2023.

Through sustainability management initiatives according to the materiality identified and KPIs set, we will enhance our corporate value not only by achieving VISION 2023 but also by contributing to the achievement of SDGs, as we strive to achieve our Corporate Vision of “Creating excitement and peace of mind for the people of the world.”


Solving social issues through products and services

The Mobility & Telematics Service Sector boasts a top-class share in the domestic market based on our long-standing technology and know-how. For sustainable growth, further technological innovations are indispensable to meet customer needs that have diversified due to the widespread use of AI and IoT. Telematics services centered on communication-type drive recorders, which contribute to creating a safe and secure driving environment, are a concrete example of this. 

In the Public Service Sector, we are working to contribute to urban planning that provides a comfortable lifestyle by developing technologies that help secure the safety of people’s lives in public, including a commercial wireless system technology, security systems that combine IoT technologies with video surveillance technology and image analysis technology, and AI body temperature measurement stations.

In the Media Service Sector, we deliver a new and exciting experience to users with the unique out-of-head localization sound field processing technology. We also contribute to a secure and comfortable lifestyle through our products and services, including portable power supplies, air purifiers and sterilizing deodorizers.


Contributing for the Sustainable Society

We believe that it is not only the acquisition of business opportunities that is important but also robust risk management and cooperation with our stakeholders. Our systematic approaches in business continuity management have been acknowledged in the form of the Resilience Certification, which is awarded to organizations contributing to national resilience by the National Resilience Promotion Office of Japan’s Cabinet Secretariat. We have also been constructing an organizational structure in which all employees can perform active roles. As a result of our efforts to promote diversity and improve work-life balance, we have received the highest-level Eruboshi Certification from the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, and have been selected as an enterprise under the 2021 Certified Health & Productivity Management Outstanding Organizations Recognition (Large Enterprise Category) program by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry. We have also been committed to building stronger relationships with the government and regional community as we continue social contribution activities such as offering environmental lectures to children who will lead the next generation, and participating in local environmental conservation activities.

Based on international frameworks such as SDGs, we will continue to actively promote solving social issues globally under our sustainability promotion structure. Contributions toward a sustainable society will create business opportunities and lead to profitable growth. We aim to demonstrate our achievements through the evolution of JVCKENWOOD, and will work as one to meet the expectations of our stakeholders based on a commitment to our corporate vision of “Creating excitement and peace of mind for the people of the world.”
