Innovation springs from novel combinations:
our connections with our customers are inspiring endless innovations.
The saying, “Innovation comes from novel combinations” means more than the simple combination of technology with technology, and things with things; it also signifies new bonds between people.
Daicel values not only the links between Daicel's technology and customers in need of solutions as well as Daicel's products and our customers' products; we also appreciate the connections between people engaged in research and development. In this way, we at Daicel passionately engage in the process of developing solutions to customer problems and addressing customer issues as matters of deep personal interest.
The Biomass Value Chain: Creating a future of promise for all
Daicel's Long-term vision, known as Daicel Vision 4.0, and the company's Mid-term management strategy, known as Accelerate 2025, were formulated to reaffirm our founding principle of “co-creation.” The goal of this principle is to contribute to the emergence of a society committed to sustainability.
Daicel is developing technologies that enable humans to utilize resources they can manage and create on their own, such as forest resources; use things made from these resources; and return them to the beginning of the cycle as the basis for creating resources in different forms. This is not about “the future that Daicel will create,” but rather “the future that Daicel will create jointly with everyone.” I myself am working toward the very big dream of “co-creation” to solve the major problems affecting everyone and the issues affecting the global environment.
No, this is essentially our plan, not a dream.
Daicel will continue to do its best, openly and globally, and we look forward to your cooperation in this effort.
