Growth Strategies

We aim to provide the kinds of value that only the Toyota Tsusho Group can provide, and become an indispensable presence for all stakeholders and wider society. To this end, we have set six key sustainability issues with the aim of achieving sustainable growth through tackling and solving societal issues. These six key sustainability issues include two top-priority issues relating to the building of foundations for corporate growth, and four top-priority issues relating to achieving corporate growth while simultaneously helping to solve societal issues. By aligning the Group's priority areas (strategies) with the latter four top-priority issues, we are aiming to contribute to the solution of societal issues while also achieving sustainable growth.

The Toyota Tsusho Group's Key Sustainability Issues (Materiality)

Seven Priority Areas (Strategies)

  1. 1
    Next Mobility Strategy

    We are working to expand into the next mobility domain by leveraging our strengths in each of our mobility businesses, which we have collectively nurtured over the years as one of our core businesses, and also working toward electrification, intelligence, and diversification with progress being made in the connected, autonomous, shared, and electric (CASE) revolution.
    Further, we continue to strive to make vehicles lighter for the benefit of carbon neutrality and the circular economy.

  2. 2
    Renewable Energy & Energy Management Strategy

    We have been involved in the renewable energy business since the 1980s, generating electricity around the world from a variety of sources such as wind, solar, hydro, and biomass.
    We have Eurus Energy Holdings Corporation, the largest wind power generation company in Japan, and Terras Energy Corporation, a major solar power generation company in Japan. By providing a stable and affordable supply of energy through the creation of systems to adjust and deliver generated power, we will contribute to a better global environment.

  3. 3
    African Growth Strategy

    In our core mobility business, as a mid- to long-term goal, we are moving toward sales of 500,000 units in 2030, mainly of Toyota vehicles.
    And with providing pharmaceuticals and development of a retail business with Carrefour which is the largest retailers in France, based on the philosophy "With Africa, For Africa", we are aiming to contribute to the development of local communities and further strengthen and expand our operational base.

  4. 4
    Circular Economy Strategy

    We have been promoting the circular economy as our business for roughly 50 years since the 1970s.
    We believe that "all things are resources," and contribute to the realization of a recycling-based society by collecting waste materials, sorting them, turning them into resources, and carrying out resource recycling to support manufacturing.
    We continue to contribute to the automotive industry, manufacturing that is a source of pride in Japan, with high-quality recycled plastic while reducing environmental pollution.

  5. 5
    Battery Strategy

    We are developing our business in all areas of the battery value chain.We are working to stably secure lithium as a raw material for batteries, to handle battery materials such as cathode and anode electrode materials and peripheral components, to participate in battery manufacturing businesses in North America and China, and to engage in the "3Rs" (rebuild, reuse, and recycle) of batteries among other projects.

  6. 6
    Hydrogen & Alternative Fuel Strategy

    The hydrogen value chain is composed of "produce," "transport," and "use," and our corporate group is particularly focused on "produce" and "use."
    We are operating hydrogen stations in Japan, and working to create utilization models for ports, public transportation, and other areas where fuel-cell electric vehicle (FCEV) mobility is intensively used in Japan and overseas.

  7. 7
    Economy of Life Strategy

    We will improve the quality of life in countries and regions where we have strengths by developing businesses that support people's daily lives and contribute to the realization of a highly convenient and healthy society in the future.
    As an example, in collaboration with the outdoor products company, we will recycle waste into resources to allow all discarded clothing to be revived into new clothing.
    We are working to realize the establishment of a circular economy system in the Economy of Life field.

The consolidated financial results for FY2023

Gross profit increased 83.5 billion yen year on year to 1523 billion yen, largely due to increases in trading volume of automobile production-related products and automotive sales volume.
Operating profit increased 52.8 billion yen year on year to 441.5 billion yen due to an increase in gross profit, which offset higher selling, general and administrative expenses.
Profit attributable to owners of the parent increased 47.3 billion yen year on year to 331.4 billion yen, largely due to an increase in operating profit as well as decreases in the share of profit (loss) of investments accounted for using the equity method due to decreases in electricity prices in Europe, and decreases in metal market price. We are forecasting full-year profit attributable to owener of the parent of 350.0 billion yen for the fiscal year ending March 31,2025.

Dividend Policy

The Company's dividend policy is in the period from FY2023 to FY2025 we will achieve progressive dividend and consolidated dividend payout ratio of 30% or more.
