Management Principles

Basic Principles of Management

Shimizu Corporation has adopted the principles in The Analects and the Abacus, which contains the teachings of Eiichi Shibusawa, as the basic management principles. The core tenet of these teachings is that ethics and economic activities are compatible. We will continue to create value that surpasses the expectations of our customers through ongoing innovation and a sincere approach to monozukuri (superb craftsmanship), based on the basic management principles.

Corporate Slogan

We are now in an age that demands that a corporation act as member of society, fulfill its responsibilities, and actively contribute to society. As a corporation, we are called upon to demonstrate principles and character, rather than simply pursue economic value.

A corporation must clearly convey what it stands for to society. It must be generous in providing the help that society seeks, and strive to be a company that society both needs and desires.

We created our corporate slogan out of our strong desire to make sure that Shimizu Corporation is widely recognized among the general public, and that people correctly understand what Shimizu stands for.

Work that we can proudly pass on to our children

The corporate slogan in Japanese contains these thoughts.

The word “children” suggests the link to the next generation, and the generation after that. It also symbolizes the innocent eyes with which children view our company.

We perform our work with integrity and a strong sense of responsibility. We take pride in our work as contributing members of society, and as professionals, and we know that we must build works that will leave a tangible heritage to the next generation.

This slogan is our resolute pledge to reflect that attitude in the performance of all processes, and in the individual conduct and actions of each and every employee.

Today's Work, Tomorrow's Heritage

The word “heritage” in the overseas version of the corporate slogan has the familiar ring of world heritage. It essentially means traditional principles, value, and quality.

We perform our work with integrity and a strong sense of responsibility. We take pride in our work as contributing members of society, and as professionals, and we know that we must build works that will leave a tangible heritage to the next generation.

We have cultivated what Shimizu stands for throughout our history and will continue to create new history. This slogan expresses the message that we want people around the world to understand. It is our resolute pledge to reflect that attitude in the performance of all processes, and in the individual conduct and actions of each and every employee.
