Global Annual Financial and CSR Report


"No one prospers without rendering benefit to others."

An enterprise is an important member of society, and as such, it must coexist with other elements of society. Its value will be measured by the benefits it shares with society. Behind the YKK Philosophy of the CYCLE OF GOODNESS is the concept that "contributions to society can best be achieved by the continual creation of value through innovative ideas and inventions. The resulting business expansion will bring prosperity to consumers and business partners, thus benefiting all society. This has been our philosophy since 1934, and remains the basis of our business today.
