NEC has defined the brand statement “Orchestrating a brighter world” and provides solutions to worldwide social issues for the realization of a global society where everyone has the opportunity to lead positive and abundant lives.
In 2014, we announced this brand statement in order to confirm our vision to achieve “Social Value Creation.” This statement is rooted in the NEC group corporate philosophy which was established in 1990 (“NEC strives through C&C - the integration of computers and communications - to help advance societies worldwide toward a deepened mutual understanding and the fulfillment of human potential”).For us at NEC, sustainable management (or what we also call “CSR management”) means that every one of us, executives and employees, will seek to operationalize the brand statement and the corporate philosophy through our business activities while listening to the voices of society through dialogue with our stakeholders. In that perspective, our activities, which include both non-profit social contributions and our core business, will contribute to the creation of social value, impacting society and the environment positively.
NEC leverages its years of experience and unique strengths to focus on seven themes of social value creation in order to solve the challenges faced by customers and society. These themes are based on six megatrends that were identified by analyzing trends in global economics, society, and technology.
Through dialog and cooperation with the various stakeholders, NEC endeavors to understand the fundamental issues of customers and society as a whole, and will continue working with them to establish a solid trust relationship. With its stakeholders, NEC will create and offer new value in its effort to solve social issues.
Dialog with Stakeholders Aimed at Identifying Materiality
NEC has been pursuing initiatives to enhance sustainable management via dialog with stakeholders, as emphasized in the ISO 26000, a guidance on social responsibility.
Communication with stakeholders is very important also in the process of identifying materiality (priority themes towards sustainable development) while taking the expectations of society into consideration.
Dialog and Co-Creation with our Diverse Stakeholders
“Orchestrating a brighter world” is NEC’s brand statement that demonstrates the company’s resolve to finding solutions to worldwide social issues and realizing a global society where everyone has the opportunity to lead lives that are positive and enriching.

Cooperation with the Communities
The NEC Group Corporate Philosophy was established in 1990 in the belief that “NEC strives through "C&C" to help advance societies worldwide toward deepened mutual understanding and the fulfillment of human potential.” This philosophy lays down NEC’s intention to contribute to society through C&C, in other words, through ICT－NEC’s core line of business.
NEC received high marks in non-financial areas for its approaches to CSR or ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) issues and is included in world-renowned SRI (Socially Responsible Investment) indices.
