To bring about SHARP Eco Vision 2050, Sharp Corporation has stipulated long-term goals in three fields of action. In pursuing these goals, we will strive to create more clean energy than the total amount of energy consumed in Sharp's entire supply chain, while minimizing the environmental impact of our business activities.
Sharp Corporation strives to use less energy in its business activities and to make products that are increasingly more energy efficient, so as to reduce the amount of energy consumed by households and society as a whole.
We began developing solar cells after founder Tokuji Hayakawa said, "All the products we make use electricity. As our company grows, we will need more electricity, so why don't we make electricity ourselves?" Since then, we have spent more than half a century working to spread solar power generation. It is precisely because Sharp makes products that use electricity that we have a responsibility to reduce the environmental impacts resulting from this electricity use.
