Sustainability Approach and System

Sustainability Management

Pursuing Value Creation to Address Social Issues and Deliver Sustainable Growth as a Company

Under its mission statement calling for “a safer, smoother society,” “protection of the global environment” and “improved relationships between people,” NSK aims to balance its contribution to resolutions for social issues with sustainable growth as a company by creating collaborative value with all stakeholders. This is NSK’s approach to sustainability.

Moreover, we have positioned fiscal 2022 to fiscal 2026, the period of the Mid-Term Management Plan 2026 (MTP2026) as a period for rebuilding NSK’s corporate foundation for sustainable growth. By undertaking the three key management tasks of “growth with profitability,” “enhancement of managerial resources” and “ESG management,” NSK aims to contribute to a sustainable world and remain a company that is needed, trusted, and continually chosen by society.

Under a governance framework that raises the efficiency, flexibility and fairness of management and strengthens the supervisory function, NSK’s approach to ESG is based on the core values of safety, quality, environment, and compliance. NSK’s approach also defines contribution to resolutions of social issues as a responsibility of the Company. Similarly, upon advancing initiatives, the Company formulated the SDGs Declaration that respects the spirit of the SDGs and selected NSK’s seven key goals based on this approach. While keeping these seven material issues in mind, the Company has drawn up the Declaration of NSK’s Initiatives as strategic initiatives with more clarity. Through its business activities, NSK will contribute to the achievement of the SDGs by continuing to create collaborative value with stakeholders.
