    CONTENTS This report is published every year to inform our diverse stakeholders on our approaches and the current state of the Yanmar Group’s CSR efforts, and to present company results for each fiscal year, with the aim of improving CSR activities through two-way communication. The information carried in this report was selected from the view of its importance to the Group and to society, in line with the core standards of ISO 26000*.

    The Yanmar corporate website, which underwent a complete revamp in 2014, has received a gold medal in the website (corporate site) division of the 36th (2015) Japan BtoB Advertising Awards. These awards, which have been conferred since 1980 with the aim of promoting the proliferation and development of BtoB advertising, constitute one of the most respected contests in Japan. Our site, which was selected from a total of 343 for which applications were submitted, was praised for its “simple and easy-to-view interface,” “the way the wealth of information available is edited to make it easy for the target audience to understand,” “the effective use of video content when the need arises,” and so on.

    A growing world population, food security and challenges to our

    environment.

    Facing these problems, we look to the next 100 years.

    With our business of Food Production and Harnessing Power,

    Yanmar has an important duty ahead of us.

    Food and Energy are nothing less than the future of society itself.

    We are taking our first steps into our next century.

    These are the efforts we embark upon as we open up new

    technologies towards YANMAR's Future in 2112: “YF2112”.

    In 1912, Yanmar’s DNA was born from the desire to use technology

    to solve the problems facing society.

    It is our intention to use this DNA to tackle the challenges of the

    coming century.

    To realize a sustainable society. That is Yanmar’s new challenge.

    Delivering new value from agriculture with the aim of promoting resource recycling in the agricultural sector.

    Providing year-round support to our global customers

    Promoting new ways of working with the aim of delivering a level of value that exceeds expectations.
