Sharp and the environment
"Make products that others want to imitate." These words, spoken by Sharp founder Tokuji Hayakawa, embody Sharp's management concept. As a manufacturer, Sharp contributes to society by being a leader in making products that meet the needs of a new era. Successive generations of Sharp leaders have pursued this concept by making products that contribute to society and in the process, created a corporation that is well-known and trusted around the globe.
What underlies Sharp's goal of making products that become the mainstream of the next generation is concern for the environment. Sustainable manufacturing means, by extension, building a sustainable society, and indeed, doing so can be the greatest challenge of our time.
