Established in 1959, the Kyocera Corporation's goal is to provide for the material and intellectual growth of all employees and, through joint effort, contribute to the advancement of society and humankind. Perhaps this is due to Kyocera's roots as a small suburban factory where success was dependent on everyone putting forth their maximum efforts and relying on their comrades.
Because only a few countries can control an energy source like petroleum, we invite international conflict by relying on it. Solar energy is free for everyone. Companies like Kyocera that involve themselves in developing and promoting solar power help the world look beyond short term profit to the advancement of our society as a whole.
