Our corporate philosophy, and that of our parent company Yamabiko, is to "Create the bridge that bonds people and nature with the future". Our philosophy is formed from three elements starting with "Essence" which incorporates both “Purpose of Existence” and “Code of Conduct”. It expresses our outlook as a company that grows its business by striving to sustain a healthy environment today and for the future, for people all over the world. “Purpose of Existence” sets out the role and responsibilities of employees in society, and makes a commitment to this within four core beliefs: offer the best products and service, support people and companies committed to sustaining nature and the environment, lead the industry, and provide a sense of fulfillment to all our stakeholders. “Code of Conduct” defines the attitude of each ECHO and Yamabiko employee in relation to their work. This includes observing change, combining fact with theory, breaking the status quo, thinking and acting with vitality, and conducting oneself with sincerity and grace.
