CSR: Message from the President
In belief that sports plays an important role in building a healthier society,
GOLDWIN is committed to supporting para-sports,
nurturing next-generation athletes,
promoting sports and other activities in local communities.
GOLDWIN was recognized by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan under the 2017 Certified Health and Productivity Management Organization Recognition Program in the large enterprise category (White 500). With great pride as one of 235 companies recognized out of 3500 listed companies in Japan, we will continue to make improvements to our work environment so that our employees can set an example of how sports can contribute to a healthy and meaningful life.
Preparations for the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics and Paralympics well underway, I believe sports now are playing an even greater role in our society. 2020 is the year GOLDWIN will also celebrate its 70th anniversary. Soon after its founding, we’ve made the strategic decision to focus on the sports apparel business and, in 1963, the year before the last Tokyo Summer Olympics, the name was changed to the current GOLDWIN Inc. I cannot help but feel a special connection with us and Olympics.
With the world’s eyes on Japan as we prepare for the 2020 Tokyo and the Rugby World Cup 2019, GOLDWIN is determined to carry its slogan “Sports First” into action and support activities that will foster a healthy, safe, secure and enjoyable society, which I hope will be experienced by many visitors from around the world. As a manufacturing company, GOLDWIN is first and foremost committed to fulfilling our social responsibility through our product development which we are able to offer direct to our customers.
