The employees, partners, and the communities of ISF inspire the theme of our 2021 Sustainability Report – ‘Our People, Our Strength’, a show of our appreciation and commitment to our greatest asset that keeps our business and operations afloat. The theme is also illustrated on this year’s cover and its content photos, depicting the faces behind ISF’s success, and a reminder that we must always put our employees’ health and wellbeing a priority while ensuring business continuity.
Corresponding to the report’s theme, ISF’s CEO Takashi Ishigami remarked, “The last year taught us we are nowhere without our people as we continued to face physical and market challenges stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic and extreme weather events. We adapted, responded swiftly, and remained resilient because of them.” He further said, “ISF persevered in these challenging times with the whole-hearted support of community members and our employees, who are the backbone of our business and the cornerstone of our success.”
