Contributing to the multi-dimensional values of sports


Why are priority issues important ? (reason for importance)

The values that sports can offer are diverse, playing a crucial role in helping people lead richer, healthier, and more comfortable lives. Mizuno believes it’s essential to deliver the joy of sports to as many people as possible, allowing them to experience the spirit embodied in sports through "fair play," "friendship," and "fighting spirit." Additionally, we believe it’s important to cooperate with relevant institutions to provide solutions that leverage the potential of sports to address the challenges faced by society.

Mizuno’s Risks and Opportunities

The decrease in the population of sports competitors due to the decline in the domestic population, and the stagnation of the domestic sports market, are recognized as risks by Mizuno.
Utilizing our group’s understanding, know-how, technology, and network related to sports, Mizuno aims to maximize the power of sports, delivering its value to more people around the world, and will continue to aim for global business expansion.

Approach to priority Issues

With the aim of promoting sports and increasing the number of people involved in sports, we will provide "opportunities," "venues," and "services" to respond not only to "participating in sports" but also to "watching sports" and "supporting sports." In doing so, we will create "joy, excitement, and dreams" that contribute to the revitalization of the community.
