Corporate Social Responsibility

"Do the right thing as a human being."

Kyocera is unique in that it is deeply grounded in a comprehensive philosophy. The Kyocera Philosophy is both the foundation and scaffolding of our corporate culture. It was developed out of Dr. Inamori's search for his own answers to the most fundamental questions about life and work. Over the years it has been internationally recognized and studied by top universities including Harvard and MIT. The centerpiece of the Philosophy is "Do the right thing as a human being." That worldview guides all our management decisions and daily efforts. The result is a long-standing commitment to our employees, our customers, society and the environment.

Commitment to the Environment

At Kyocera, we strive to be good corporate citizens at all times. We desire a global environment in which all people can live and work safely and lead productive lives. We believe that our business practices and manufacturing processes must support the sustainability of global resources. Kyocera is committed to providing its customers with products that are both safe and reliable. In addition, Kyocera provides leadership and financial support to industry and community initiatives that share our commitment to the environment.

Community / Social Outreach

Kyocera understands the importance of supporting its community and makes a point to be active in local outreach. We support multiple community outreach initiatives throughout the year. Our employees are encouraged to participate in annual holiday food drives benefiting local food banks, toy drives benefiting Rady's Children's hospital, volunteering at Ronald McDonald House, river cleanups, blood drives and other local volunteer events.
