Creating for Tomorrow

About Asahi Kasei Corporation

Asahi Kasei was founded with the aim of "providing the best living materials at abundantly low prices so that people can realize a better life" with a wish for human happiness. Over the next century, society's needs have changed depending on the age environment, but we have responded with wisdom. It is a way of Asahi Kasei that does not change since its establishment by taking on challenges ahead of changes in society and changing on its own. Asahi Kasei's sales amounted to 2,151.6 billion yen (as of the end of March 2020), with more than 40,000 employees. We started CVC in 2008 and have achieved many results. In 2019, we have established the Marketing & Innovation Division, which is focused on creating new businesses through open innovation.
