Information Revolution — Happiness for everyone

Guided by our corporate philosophy, “Information Revolution—Happiness for everyone,” the SoftBank Group is continuing to take on challenges in an age of rapid change brought on by the Information Revolution. At the same time, we aim to continue to contribute to all individuals and society as a corporate group through our business activities.

The Information Revolution is expected to usher in a new era in the near future, where the cognitive abilities of computers will surpass those of humans. This will enable computers to interact even more closely with people in daily life, understanding our thoughts and emotions. We believe these advances will offer new ways to enrich human emotions and feelings, as well as bring happiness to humanity.

As a pioneer of the Information Revolution, the SoftBank Group is looking to this future as it works to enhance and enliven people's lifestyles and continues to develop in step with people around the world. When people lead fuller lives, they are able to relax and expand their horizons to consider a wider range of social issues. We believe that contributing to society in this way is part of our responsibility as a company.

We will continue our efforts to make people around the world happy. To encourage this, we have been taking action according to the SoftBank Group CSR Principles, following the key themes of building a healthy Internet society, cultivating the next generation with dreams and aspirations, safeguarding the planet's future through environmental protection, and supporting the reconstruction of areas affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake. Over the years, we have created a strong foundation of trust with our stakeholders, including customers, shareholders, business partners, and employees. We are committed to solving social issues through our business activities.
