Long-Term Management Initiative

- Creating a beautiful living environment for our future -

Tokyu Corporation (hereinafter "the Company") has recently prepared that it has formulated a long-term management initiative, which shows its management stance, area strategy, business strategy, and other aspects for the period until 2030 (hereinafter, the “Initiative”).

Since the Company foundation, we have been striving to resolve social issues through urban development based on the railway business. The Company is currently working on medium-term management plan (FY2018 to FY2020) under the slogan of “Make the Sustainable Growth.”
The plan sets out three basic policies: sustainable urban development, sustainable corporate development and sustainable HR development. Under these policies, the Company pursues safety, security, and comfort in its railway business, steady progress in large-scale development projects aimed at increasing SHIBUYA’s global appeal, the improvement of the value of the areas served by Tokyu’s railway lines and lives of people in those areas through demonstrating the comprehensive strength of the Group’s businesses, business expansion through strategic alliances, and others.

In this environment, the Company changed the existing Japan trade name, which has been used for more than 70 years, in September 2 , and split the railway business , in October 1.

The Company formulated a long-term management initiative in the belief that it is time to work quickly on the enhancement of the group management system, including the split of the railway business divisions, and clearly indicate Tokyu’s visions for the future and the direction in which Tokyu will go.

In formulating the Initiative, the Company reaffirmed that the group slogan, “Toward a Beautiful Age - Tokyu Group,” is a universal standard of value, and set “Creating a beautiful living environment for our future” as the subtitle.
The Company will work to achieve both the resolution of social issues and the growth of the business by combining area-specific strategies reflecting the characteristics and growth potential of the individual areas, including those outside the areas served by Tokyu’s railway lines, and strategies specific to businesses including transportation infrastructures, urban development, and the lifestyle service business, while also squarely addressing the material themes for sustainable management, which the company formulated in consideration of the present and future changes in the social environment and with awareness of the SDGs and other aspects.
The Initiative also includes a chapter entitled “Challenges for the Future,” which shows Tokyu’s visions for the future (visions for 2050) to be achieved the development of “A City Adored by People around the World’ by providing social values originally created by Tokyu as a company with a wide range of business domains.
