Social and cultural contribution through design

Earning your trust through design for a prosperous society.

Designphil conducts our operations based on our corporate philosophy of social and cultural contribution through design. In order to evolve further as a company that is trusted by every stakeholder in the ever more global world we live in, we resolutely fulfill our obligation to better society through our CSR (corporate social responsibility) activities.

Our CSR activities are centered on conservation of the global environment and fostering a prosperous society and culture. Particularly in our environmental endeavors, we actively focus our design capabilities on the creation of products that help people live ecologically in their everyday lives without concerted effort on their part.

Every Designphil employee engages earnestly in our CSR activities, continuing to provide new value while actively contributing to a more prosperous society.

Our environmental
philosophy and policy

Environmental Philosophy

At Designphil, we recognize the importance of global environmental conservation within corporate operations. We utilize our design capabilities to achieve a prosperous society that is in harmony with the environment. We create products that can be used for a long time, utilize clean low-carbon production processes, and promote the creation of products that are recycla-ble or biodegradable at the end of their lifespan.

Environmental Policy

  • 1. We harness our design capabilities to develop products that will be held on to and used for a long time to come.
  • 2. We strive to reduce the use and emission of hazardous chemicals within the manufacturing process.
  • 3. We act in accordance with environmental laws and regulations and instruct and educate factories in our employ to follow suit.
  • 4. As part of our environmental strategy, we promote recycling and other resource and energy conservation in our daily practices.

Environmental Activities

  • ・Designphil acquires enough green power to print our Business Diary, which achieved a reduction of 13.26t in CO2 emissions for the 2023 version (from 2015).
  • ・We achieved a 54t reduction in CO2 emissions by changing the lighting at our Nagareyama Factory to LED lighting (from 2022).
  • ・The covers of our Pocket Diaries are repurposed into recycled PVC sheets for floors in places like polling stations.
  • ・We held a tour of our Nagareyama Factory for members of the public because we felt that if our users could see how our products are made, they would come to love our products all the more.
