Since its establishment in 1845, JP has pioneered the distribution of paper and paperboard in Japan and has continued to develop and enhance its capabilities to accurately respond to current needs throughout the ages. In recent years, with the dramatic changes in the global community and economic system, JP has been striving to expand its overseas operations and environment-related activities, while actively seeking to realize synergistic effects between its newly developing businesses and its core paper and paperboard sales activities.
So as not to lose sight of its goals amidst the dramatically changing business environment, in 2008 the JP Group formulated its long-term business vision, Innovation 2020, to guide the Group’s managerial and general business activities. Furthermore in April 2011, we implemented the JP Group Mid-term Business Plan 2013, clarifying medium-term issues to be addressed in order to realize our long-term vision.
Guided by its long-term vision and mid-term business plan, JP will work to strengthen its revenue base, enhance its human resources and maximize its group worth by promoting growth and the active development of crucial business areas including the expansion of the Group’s global business operations and environment-related business activities as it strives to create a foundation for sustainable group-wide development.
Furthermore, in accordance with the fundamental Jiririta ethos upon which our company traditions have been upheld, which is based on the concept that by acting with the benefit of others in mind one will achieve true gain, we will continue to respond to the trust that our many stakeholders, from our customers and business partners to our investors, employees and the local communities in which we operate have placed in us with sincerity as we strive to grow together. To this end, I ask for your continued understanding and support.
