In 2019, following a change in our company name, the Life Solutions Company redefined its company mission as "Expand 'A Better Life' to home, community and society" and company vision as "Make a better comfortable life with human-centered solution." Our contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) consists of providing spatial solutions that support both human well-being and environmental sustainability through a pursuit of comfort that is human-centered rather than technology-centered.
Human-centered approach creates new value for well-being and environment
For office spaces, our work has long been focused on increasing energy efficiency by controlling indoor lighting, climate and other systems based on human flows and numbers. Going forward, we aim to use AI and other technologies to optimize the comfort of the space around each individual according to the setting, time of day, and other factors, and thus deliver more customized value that promotes individual well-being.
We are also an industry leader in the development and sales of solar panels, storage batteries and other electrical equipment designed for energy generation, storage, and conservation. We have found that incorporating a human-centered approach to optimizing spaces has created more room for energy efficiency, a long-time goal of ours. Using IT, we hope to achieve new levels of environmental sustainability.
Circular business that follows buildings through entire lifespan
For a long time, we’ve adopted a scrap-and-build business model that constantly seeks to offer something new to offices, stores, hotels and other spaces. In the years ahead, we believe software should be used to update entire buildings in addition to physical renovations. A circular business that follows each building through its entire lifespan is our ultimate vision. We will strive to create a circular economy-style business with our partner companies by creating a recurring-revenue model where we stay with the customer and deliver value even after the sale and handover.
Improving access to sanitary water with well water purifiers
Our contribution to well-being is global. For example, in 2019, we launched a well water purifier business in Indonesia. Many of the world's people still live on well water, and ensuring access to safe water resources is part of the SDGs. By developing this new business, we hope to expand the scope of our contribution to the SDGs.
We must accelerate our work in sustainability, even beyond 2030
The SDGs have 2030 as their target year, but that is no stopping point. We believe the work of creating a sustainable society will continue on indefinitely. We must accelerate our contribution to the SDGs. And in partnership with others, we must respond more flexibly to the unexpected social challenges that happen down the road.
