To fulfill our Mission Statement, we strive to solve social issues, contribute to the realization of A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE and the achievement of SDGs

Yanmar Group is committed to solving customers' problems using the world's most advanced technology in the fields of food production and harnessing power. Our Mission Statement declares these elements to be essential to human life. Practicing our Mission Statement is in fact the CSR of Yanmar Group and our brand statement "A Sustainable Future - Creating new value through technology." It is indispensable in realizing the four visions of our brand statement.

Population growth and economic development mainly in emerging countries lead to the accumulation of social issues, such as increase in energy demand, imbalance in food supply and climate change. Based on the goals and targets of the SDGs*, we will contribute to solving these issues through communication and collaboration with various stakeholders.

Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)


Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) include goals to be achieved by 2030, as stated in the agenda adopted by the United Nations in September 2015, "Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development".

It consists of 17 objectives and 169 targets which expanded from the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) to include both the developing and developed countries as a worldwide initiative. Contributions of innovative creations and technologies owned by private companies of each country play an important role in achieving these goals.
