CYCLE OF 
GOODNESS®

No one prospers without rendering benefit to others.

As an important member of society, a company survives through coexistence. When the benefits are shared, the value of the company’s existence will be recognized by society.
When pursuing his business YKK’s founder, Tadao Yoshida, was most concerned with that aspect, and would find a path leading to mutual prosperity.
He believed that using ingenuity and inventiveness in business activities and constantly creating new value would lead to the prosperity of clients and business partners and make it possible to contribute to society.
This type of thinking is referred to as the “Cycle of Goodness,” and has always served as the foundation of our business activities.
We have inherited this way of thinking, and have established it as the YKK Philosophy.

YKK's new corporate logo places emphasis on Sustainability, Speed, and Quality​

“YKK products are small parts,” said Hiroaki Otani, president, YKK Corporation. “But if all employees embrace the ideas imbedded in this new logo as we move forward, I believe that with these small parts we can deliver great value to customers, societies, and employees around the world, and help the planet and its natural environment.”

YKK switches to sustainable materials

So far sales of our NATULON® Series of zippers that use recycled materials has increased year-on-year since FY2020. Furthermore we have rolled out GreenRise®, a partially plant-derived zipper, and we are making a phased switchover of SOFIX® products to SOFIX® NATULON®.
