Since its founding in 1971, I-NET, headquartered in Kanagawa Prefecture (Yokohama City), has continued to grow with support from local customers and partner companies. Based on our gratitude for the support in the past, we have valued management that closely work with local communities, engaging in a variety of social contribution activities, including establishing a foundation to support organizations, such as non-profit organizations and volunteer organizations, and establishing a special subsidiary for promoting the employment of disabled people. In light of the international framework of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for 2030, adopted by the United Nations in 2015, the movement toward building sustainable society is accelerating in the world. Since our founder established the company to solve issues around streamlining of administrative work at gas stations, with the corporate philosophy "to create new systems and values using information technology and contribute to the realization of a prosperous, happy society," I-NET has continued to solve issues faced by its customers with information technology, contributing to the development of society through its business. In its ESG management, I-NET also works proactively to create a business environment in which each and every employee feels comfortable to work, through its efforts for actions to minimize the impact of business activities on the environment, enhancement of governance that can respond quickly to changes in the management environment, efforts to support promotion of employees' health, and enhancement of promoting diversity that can respond appropriately to the diversifying needs of employees.
In order to continue being a company that continues to grow further, we will create economic value, social value, and environmental value through our diverse human resources, information technology, and services, and work on developing a prosperous society along with various stakeholders.
