Toshiba's eyes are firmly fixed on the future, and in November 2018, we introduced the Toshiba Next Plan as the blueprint for company-wide transformation that will lift the potential of the Group and maximize its corporate value.

For the past few decades, global development has centered on the IT revolution, particularly the Internet and semiconductor technology, and this has created immense value. Looking ahead, we see a future where the real world technologies (physical technologies) that Toshiba has cultivated as a manufacturer will fuse with digital and internet technologies (cyber technologies). We will enter into a new world where manufacturing and services evolve together.

As we stand at the major turning point that will take us into that era, Toshiba Group is once again reaffirming its position in industry and its direction as a Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) technology company. With the Toshiba Next Plan, we will develop and execute measures focused on strengthening basic earnings power and concentrating investment in growth areas.

Guided by The Basic Commitment of Toshiba Group “Committed to people, committed to the Future,” we are a corporate group that is grounded in respect for people, that creates rich value, and that contributes to the lives and cultures of people around the world. As a signatory to the UN Global Compact, and with a sound management base, we are working toward the realization of a sustainable society by strengthening ESG (environment, society, governance) efforts across our business activities. We are also contributing to the achievement of the SDGs* through businesses directly connected to solving increasingly urgent social issues, such as climate change, energy and resource constraints.

For over 140 years, Toshiba Group has consistently contributed to society's evolution and progress, and brought a venture spirit to the development of a wide range of technologies. Moving forward, we will bring all our strengths to bear on the realization of the Toshiba Next Plan by continuing to combine the creativity and technology that we have cultivated, to confront increasingly serious social issues, and to turn on the promise of a new day.

* SDGs: Sustainable Development Goals. Goals adopted by the UN in 2015, to be achieved by 2030.
