Since before the SDGs became the center of global attention, Taiki group acquired "Resilience Certification" based on the "Guidelines for Certification of National Resilience Contribution Organizations"(In Japan) aiming to contribute to more sustainable society and to improve our corporate values. We actively pursue on the development of environmentally friendly products, electricity as well as other energy saving activities.
Our domestic factories are awarded as being establishments that actively promotes zero missions and recognized as a “green company" by Okayama City.
We aim to become a company that accepts diversity; aiming to eliminate discrimination based on gender, age, race, or physical ability. Taiki group’s female employee percentage (domestic and overseas offices combined) is as high as 70%. The percentage of female managers is 33%, and the percentage of maternity leave acquisition as well as the percentage of those who return are both 100% (based on a data in 2019). This evident that we are successful in creating a healthy working environment for both genders equally.
Taiki Group also ensures a safe working environment not only in Japan but also at overseas offices and factories following the working regulations of each country. Specifically, in order to prevent occupational accidents, the Safety and Health Committee is engaged in on-site patrol and risk assessment activities aiming for “zero occupational accidents”. Taiki group also supports the activities of the National Federation of UNESCO Associations of Japan and make contributions as a member. We support the World Terakoya Movement through activities such as participating in wasted postcard campaign. To enhance the abilities of our employees, we organize an annual training and implement educational programs and career management; this includes development training, management training, “kirei project” for female employees coaching ways to apply makeup. Lastly, in order to gain better understanding of compliance for employees, seminars are organized on the various topics: environment, discrimination, harassment, human rights, information security, etc. for all employees on regular basis.
In order to manufacture products that offer safety from every angle, we examine and follow the regulations worldwide. We have invented eco-friendly brush fiber “tafre” which attained registered biomass mark. While PBT brush fiber in the market is often made of 100% petroleum, meanwhile our tafre contains 37% natural ingredients.
We voluntarily organize activities to help improve our surrounding environment and community. One of the examples includes cleaning the nearby areas in Okayama prefecture which takes place twice a year. Beside from this, eco-commuting and campaign aiming to cut down the use of electricity are also promoted.To gain outstanding trust from our partners, Taiki group has been highly rated by external auditing farms.
