Drawing On Women's Perspectives

The MD Committee, established in January 2009, marked its eighth year of operation. In fiscal 2016, the committee, consisting of 60 women from across the company, promoted MD activities with the slogan of the two Cs (CSR and cost reduction) and the two MDs (“muda-dori” and “mudo-dukuri” – or, waste-cutting and mood creation in English). In addition to waste-cutting proposals that can be directly measured in monetary terms, they are also conducting initiatives to improve working environments and to facilitate communication, and they are promoting steady activities with a focus on creation and imagination in each plant and workplace.
