Creating Products That Contribute to the Environment

The NGK Group considers the provision of products and services that contribute to a better social environment to be one of its most important missions.
For the NGK Group, developing and distributing products contributing to environmental protection is a goal directly connected with our corporate philosophy and is therefore a priority item within the Fourth Five-Year Environmental Action Plan. We aim to achieve a 60% increase in sales of products that contribute to environmental protection compared with figures for fiscal 2013 (and maintain the sales percentage for products contributing to environmental protection at over 50% of all products) by fiscal 2020 .
In fiscal 2017, we achieved sales growth of 37% from fiscal 2013, exceeding the annual target of 30%.
