Message from the CEO

Uplifting the world with “memory,”

KIOXIA Group continues to deliver value

to society

 

Nobuo Hayasaka

President and CEO

KIOXIA Holdings Corporation

Global issues such as climate change, finite natural resources, spread of infectious diseases and various forms of social inequality have been on the rise. If we want to pass on a sustainable world to future generations these and many other issues require transformational solutions.

 

Advanced technologies address some of these challenges today. Innovations in AI, IoT, and Big Data are expected to play a key role as we move forward. For these technologies Kioxia memory solutions are indispensable to building a sustainable future.

 

The COVID-19 pandemic has provided us with an opportunity to reassess the relationship between business and society, how we respond to this ‘new normal’, and the ways we behave as a company.

 

Our sustainable management strategy is one of our most important priorities. We recently have established a Sustainability Council as an extension of our existing CSR Promotion Committee. This new group is tasked with focusing on non-financial assets and establishing medium- to long-term strategic goals for our management team.

 

As we continue on our journey of a decarbonized society, Kioxia Group is implementing various initiatives to achieve our goal of using 100% renewable energy across Kioxia by FY2040.

 

Aligned with our mission to “uplift the world with memory,” we will work with our partners to transform and enrich the lives of people everywhere and contribute to build a more creative and inspiring world.
