Correct Application of the Concept, "Do What is Right as a Human Being"
At the heart of Kyocera-Group management is the corporate philosophy known as the Kyocera Philosophy, which emphasizes the importance of fair business based on ethical, moral and social standards that people should uphold throughout life. Ultimately, it comes down to one criterion for making decisions: "What is the right thing to do as a human being?"
To practice our corporate philosophy, Kyocera-Group developed a unique management control method known as the Amoeba Management System. With this system in place, we promote a management method in which all employees can participate. Furthermore, we believe in highly transparent corporate activity with timely disclosure of information to customers, suppliers, employees, and all other stakeholders.

We believe practice of the Kyocera Philosophy builds mutual trust with stakeholders, and contributes to sustainable growth for Kyocera Document Solutions, as well as the overall development of society. We will continue to engage in corporate management through practice of the Kyocera Philosophy.
We will contribute to the advancement and development of humankind and society through practice of the Kyocera Philosophy.
