In 2018, we welcomed blind runner Shinya Wada as our first employee athlete. The way he strives to meet his goals and continues to put in effort instead of being satisfied with his current position reminds us of how the power of sports and the power of athletes have a major impact on both us in the NAGASE Group and society as a whole.
By supporting sports and athletes, we would like to contribute to promoting sports and stimulating the communities that support us, and in the end contribute to society as a whole. Based on our management philosophy of “Contributing to create a sustainable world where people live with peace of mind” while creating chemical reactions together with our supported athletes, we will grow together towards NAGASE’s 200-year anniversary in 2032 and beyond.
