OUR CORPORATE PHILOSOPHY
Innovative values for people and society on a more beautiful planet
Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, robots, autonomous driving... the world already has technologies that support Society 5.0 - the concept of reconciling economic development with solving social problems. However, further innovation is needed to address a variety of issues, such as ageing populations and declining birth rates, shrinking populations in rural areas, and inequalities in wealth and information literacy. There are also limits to human capabilities, and circumstances sometimes restrict people in their work and areas of activity. This means that no technology or service, however advanced, will succeed if it is too complicated or too cumbersome.
User-friendly interfaces and sensors will increasingly be the key to realizing services that enable everyone to lead a comfortable, high-quality and vital lifestyle, regardless of individual abilities and environment. Alps Alpine has the potential to contribute to solutions with its activities, as we are an innovative company that uses both hardware and software technologies to create comfort/emotion, safety and environmental values. In the automotive industry in particular, software is becoming increasingly important with the development of software-defined vehicle architecture. We are therefore striving to combine our core competencies with software in order to adapt to the times and accelerate our growth.
Our goal is to develop products that enable user-friendly communication and relationships between humans and machines.
Innovations and Future
On January 1, 2019, Alps Electric Co, Ltd. and Alpine Electronics, Inc. integrated their businesses and relaunched as Alps Alpine Co, Ltd. Alps Alpine will continuously create synergies by leveraging the advantages of both companies.
As an innovative T-shaped company, our endeavor is to provide new values to customers by offering a wide range of electronic components and systems suitable not only for the automotive market but also for mobile devices, consumer electronics and the new sectors to meet diverse needs
Our activities are divided into three business areas:
- Mobile & Home
- Automotive and Energy
- Healthcare, Industrial and IoT.
Alps Alpine Europe - Building a company with significance
With the world population set to reach 10 billion by 2050 and the global economy set to double in the same period, urbanization, automation and rising living standards will significantly increase the demand for energy and services. Even if critical processes cannot be stopped, it is clear that energy-efficient solutions are urgently needed to reduce CO2 emissions.
Climate change is a complex and urgent issue, but we are convinced that we need to act now. Sustainability is a clear strategic priority for Alps Alpine with ambitious targets for 2030.
Stakeholders are looking for guidance and help in reducing CO2 emissions, and at the same time the industry is - rightly - under increasing pressure from consumers, investors and regulators to take swift and effective action on environmental, social and governance issues.
We need to promote and use sustainability in discussions with our stakeholders, because together we can be the solution and provide solutions.
Energy efficiency and the circular economy are the most cost-effective way to reduce CO2 emissions and represent a great opportunity for "Business with a Meaning" worldwide.
Reducing direct emissions from our factories and buildings (Scope 1), indirect emissions from electricity and district heating (Scope 2) and upstream and downstream emissions improvements in our value chain (Scope 3) are already taken for granted in today's world.
In addition, Alps Alpine focuses on the total emissions (Scope 4) that are avoided by our customers through the use of energy-efficient products and solutions from Alps Alpine in the following areas
1. Decarbonization. With attractive Alps Alpine solutions to accelerate the transition to the use of renewable energies, e.g. by making urban transportation by e-bike safe and a real professional alternative to the car.
2. Circular Economy. Using fewer products and services by reusing assets, materials and transportation. We provide ideas to realize a circular economy and offer real value and benefits such as our asset tracking solutions that make the reuse of products visible and profitable for our customers while reducing traffic and material waste in a smart logistics world.
3. Efficiency. We use less energy to deliver the same number of products and services to the market. We offer solutions to monitor energy efficiency and use machines and equipment more productively, for example with our industrial condition monitoring solutions and efficiency-enhancing coreless current sensors.
A fourth industrial revolution, which makes use of artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things, is taking shape and is based on an increasingly sophisticated communication infrastructure. In the automotive industry, the so-called CASE trends (connected cars, autonomous driving, sharing and services and electric vehicles) and MaaS (Mobility as a Service) are bringing about a fundamental structural change. These developments are fundamentally changing the way we work and live our lives. At the same time, a variety of business models with different customers are expected to emerge in the energy, healthcare and industrial markets.
This broad portfolio offers challenges and interesting fields of activity for a wide range of professional groups and specialists.
