This company, which is active in the consumer-related sectors of ITOCHU’s operations, comprises the Forest Products & General Merchandise Division, which handles products closely linked to people’s lives—paper and pulp, natural rubber and tires, wood resources and housing materials, etc.—and the Construction, Realty & Logistics Division, which is involved in housing, logistics facilities, and other development projects, as well as the logistics business, including 3PL and international transport. We work to provide new value to society through the comprehensive strengths and global networks these divisions possess, thereby contributing to more bountiful lifestyles. We will expand our portfolio through aggressive asset replacement, proactively develop our business to meet expected rises in consumption in China and other Asian markets, and promote collaboration with the CITIC and CP Group.
Meanwhile, we view societal and environmental issues as business opportunities. For instance, we consider ensuring stable forestry resources in the paper and pulp field and building businesses that achieve harmony with local communities to be priority issues. Accordingly, we strive toward sustainable forest management. In the condominium business, we take a customer/consumer viewpoint in providing environmentally conscious housing (energy-saving technologies, design, equipment, etc.) and offering universal design that suits housing for use by multiple generations. In addition to the quality control of products, we cultivate an energy-saving awareness among condominium inhabitants and take a proactive stance toward developing communities that foster connections between communities and residents.
