We believe that sustainability is the most important common global issue of the 21st century.As the Toray Group grows, we will do everything possible not to hamper the progress of global sustainability. Under our corporate philosophy of “contributing to society through the creation of new value,” we will work diligently to eliminate any negative impact on the global environment and sustainability as a result of our growth and development. At the same time, we will engage in Group-wide activities in an effort to resolve a variety of issues and work to achieve global targets including the Paris Agreement and sustainable development goals (SDGs) together with worldwide partners.
Toray started commercial production of its non-woven material with a suede texture, which uses recycled resources derived from plants as part of its raw materials, for the first time in the world in 2015.
Through Ultrasuede®, Toray helps to realize a carbonneutral society by employing a chemical recycling system as well as by sourcing its raw materials from plant-based polymers. This provides the advantage of stable supply and quality and reliable traceability.
We consider these sustainable materials to be better for the Earth and its people as we aim to build a sustainable society through responsible manufacturing.
