Initiatives by the Moriroku Group to Address the Spreading of COVID-19

We wish to offer our most solemn condolences to those of you who have lost people whom you loved and cared for to the current COVID-19 pandemic, and our sincerest wishes for a speedy recovery to those of you who have been infected by the virus yourself.
The Moriroku Group has taken early steps to cope with and respond to this unprecedented situation. From the initial spreading of the virus to the present, we have endeavored to continue our business activities while placing top priority on the health and safety of our employees, their family members and other stakeholders both within and outside Japan.
In our office departments, we are pushing forward with the development of our work environment and employee-awareness reforms, including the introduction of telecommuting and the utilization of online meetings, with a view to establish new styles of works. Meanwhile, on the production frontlines, while keeping the risk of COVID-19 infection to a minimum, we are continuing our utmost efforts in order to fulfill our responsibility to keep our customers supplied.
The workings of greater society and styles of working have changed dramatically in the midst of our coexistence with COVID-19. We will enhance our productivity as we mutually recognize diverse work styles and values and proceed to evolve into a corporation that creates value sought after in a new era. Going forward, we will mobilize our capability within and outside the Moriroku Group as we continue to pursue new challenges with a view of becoming a company with a 400-year history.
