Activity description

Founded in 1922, the Asahi Kasei Group is a
diversified manufacturer centered on chemistry. Throughout over nine
decades of growth, we have continued to proactively diversify and adapt
our operating portfolio to changes in the economy, changes in society,
and changes in the environment. The history of the Asahi Kasei Group is
rooted in Japan’s first ammonia production by chemical synthesis, using
hydroelectric power, which formed the basis for our synthetic chemistry
and chemical fibers businesses. We now contribute to life and living for
people around the world through our operations in the three business
sectors of Material consisting of fibers, chemicals, and electronics
businesses; Homes consisting of homes and construction materials
businesses; and Health Care consisting of pharmaceuticals, medical
devices, and acute critical care businesses.

As society all around the world continues
to change dramatically, we face a wide variety of challenges including
issues of resources, energy, and the environment, the continuing
evolution of information technology, greater general awareness for
health and safety issues, and aging and declining populations in Japan.
The products, technologies, and services of the Asahi Kasei Group can
create new value that helps society overcome such challenges by
contributing to a clean environment, to clean energy, and to health,
comfort, peace of mind, and longevity. In the Material sector we have
environmentally friendly and original products with high added value, in
the Homes sector we are making innovative lifestyle proposals that
anticipate changing needs, and in the Health Care sector we are focusing
on unmet medical needs, to mention just a few examples.

With the start of our new strategic
management initiative in fiscal 2016, the Asahi Kasei Group transitioned
to an operating holding company configuration in order to execute our
strategy and obtain greater synergy among our diverse operations. Under
the new configuration we will leverage the broad-ranging businesses and
multifaceted human resources gained across our history of
diversification to actively innovate through our products, technologies,
and services. By fulfilling our Group Slogan of “Creating for Tomorrow”
with a firm presence for our high-earnings businesses, we will advance
as a reliable and dependable enterprise that meets the expectations of
our stakeholders.
