The Honda Philosophy, imbued in the Company by its founders Soichiro Honda and Takeo Fujisawa, comprises Fundamental Beliefs (Respect for the Individual and The Three Joys), the Company Principle and Management Policies. The Philosophy forms the values shared by all Honda Group companies and all of their associates. It is the basis for Honda’s corporate activities and associates’ behavior and decision-making.
The Philosophy is more than mere words. Every person in the Company is responsible for continually putting it into practice. That is why Honda incorporates the Philosophy into training programs for its associates and gives it life by turning it into action, from everyday business activities to management decision-making.
Additionally, Honda adheres to a corporate culture of “Free and Open, Challenge, Co-evolution.” This means, in other words, “taking up challenges without fear of failure, unshackled by conventional thinking, and with a foundation of teamwork built on trust.” Our corporate activities leverage this corporate culture.
Society’s expectations of Honda continue to evolve with the times. As a responsible global company, Honda will continue to tackle and resolve various issues while listening to the voices of its diverse stakeholders, so as to meet their expectations and earn their trust.
