Corporate Ethics

EBARA's entire business framework is based on a corporate culture filled with passion, dedication, and a commitment to bettering society through our core competencies.

Over the 100 years of EBARA’s existence, we have strived to maintain the values established by our founding spirit that emphasizes conducting business in a fashion that fosters trust with all stakeholders.

We espouse a responsible approach to corporate citizenship that is in line with EBARA’s values and focuses on the positive impact of our global enterprise on the world. Our approach is structured in the following way, placing emphasis on each tier in a way that leverages the core competencies of our employees and company.

The EBARA Way

We call the top three elements the Ebara Way. The EBARA Way is the unchanging ideals that set EBARA employees apart. Regardless of which business segment or where in the world you are doing business, EBARA is committed to acting with passion and dedication in accordance with the Founding Spirit to fulfill our Corporate Philosophy while acting in line with our CSR policy.

Founding Spirit: Passion and Dedication

Passion and Dedication:“Both the employees and company shall strive for growth with passion and dedication to bring forth originality and ingenuity, rather than simply fulfilling the task at hand. When working with passion and dedication there is nothing that cannot be communicated to others” – Issey Hatakeyama, Founder of EBARA CORPORATION”

“Netsu to Makoto” (Passion and Dedication) attributes accountability to all employees in fulfilling their tasks, and calls on EBARA people to approach their job with a passion and dedication that brings forth ingenuity and originality. The spirit is part of our DNA and asserts that genuine passion and dedication in any dealings with others will always be recognized and valued.

Corporate Philosophy

We contribute to society through high quality technologies and services relating to water, air and the environment.

It is the mission of the EBARA Group to develop our core competencies, products and services to create solutions for the issues facing the world today.

By supporting the global community through our core competencies and business dealings and focusing on the environment and sustainability we hope to make the world greener and healthier for future generations.
