Ichisuke Fujioka, one of Toshiba’s founders, penned this calligraphy while still a boy of 10. Pronounced as shizen in Japanese, the characters translate as “the greatest good,” a concept that remained the lifelong credo of Fujioka, a man of integrity who always wanted to be of service to people. The same impulse to work for the benefit of society is an integral part of the DNA of Toshiba Group. Committed to People, Committed to the Future. Toshiba remains committed to pursuing business with integrity so that together we can build a better world.
