The global society enveloping the NAGASE Group faces a number of challenges, including population growth, resource depletion, climate abnormalities, and environmental issues. The NAGASE Group shall leverage its innovation in working to resolve issues related to health, safety, security, and the environment.

We believe that the concept of open innovation is important in solving these issues. Based on this belief, we aim to create new value by building win-win partnerships with entities in academia, our customers, and our suppliers.

In 2017, we established the NVC (New Value Creation) Office with the aim of promoting innovation in the NAGASE Group, creating new value and consequently the core driving our future businesses. The office tracks trend shifts in the IT industry, such as in IoT and AI, and plans and drafts new business schemes not previously present within the NAGASE Group. The office then deploys these for implementation in the Group's business units.
