Message from the Management

Message

Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, dynamic structural changes happened simultaneously in various aspects of our lives, society, and the economy. Under these circumstances, in addition to gaining the appropriate and necessary profits for sustainable growth, from a sustainable corporate management perspective, companies are also required to maintain harmonious relationships with society based on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria and other such values. It is also essential to actively work toward utilizing digital transformation (DX) technologies and raising diversity awareness as a means for promoting structural reform.

The Alfresa Group is pursuing sustainable corporate management with the aim of both realizing a sustainable society and continuously increasing corporate value.

From 2019, we have been promoting various reforms in the health and medical care fields based on the 19–21 Mid-term Management Plan The Challenge of Further Growth “Together with Health, Together with Communities.” We are bringing together all capabilities of the Group in order to realize a Healthcare Consortium* that provides products and services in every health-related field. In addition, we are also promoting collaboration with companies in different business sectors, as well as capital and business alliances with venture companies.

The purpose of all of these initiatives is to create and deliver a fresh life for all, as stated in Our Philosophy. Going forward, we will fulfill our role of supporting the social infrastructure as a health- and medical care-related corporate group, through the stable supply of pharmaceuticals, the distribution of COVID-19 vaccines, and other initiatives.
