Sharp Corporation is a company known worldwide for its unique one-of-a-kind electronic products and solutions. Sharp Corporation’s challenge is to create a balance between work time and personal time, with products that can benefit people’s lives at work, at home, and everywhere in between. Sharp consumer electronics can enhance consumer’s enjoyment, add to consumer’s comfort and open new perspectives. Sharp business products can boost productivity and reduce costs. Sharp products are designed to help individuals, families, and corporate teams connect effortlessly, communicate clearly, and unleash creativity like never before. Sharp is dedicated to improving people’s lives through the use of advanced technology and a commitment to innovation, quality, value, and design.

Sharp Electronics Corporation Chairman and CEO, Kozo Takahashi believes, “We’re very excited about the Sharp products you’ll discover as you explore our website. We hope you’ll find that they better your own lifestyle with Sharp quality, innovation and style.”

At Sharp, we have a long, rich heritage of imaginative products that improve people’s lives. In 1915, our founder invented the “Ever-Sharp Pencil,” a mechanical pencil from which Sharp takes its name. Sharp has long lived up to this name with such innovations as the world’s first electronic calculator, the first microwave oven turntable, and the mass production of solar cells way back in 1963.

Today, Sharp’s ever-evolving product line includes revolutionary multi-function business products, renewable energy-creating solar panels, a full range of beautiful, energy-efficient AQUOS® LCD TVs, and our latest: LED lighting, which builds on a long history of leadership in critical technologies. We also continue to explore other innovative products and technologies that promise major advances in our ability to create and save energy both at home and in the workplace.

Sharp is just as passionate about the environment as we are about our products. Sharp’s LCD plant in Kameyama, Japan, is an impressive example of environmental conservation, featuring one of the world’s largest roof-mounted solar electricity systems. In Sakai, Japan, Sharp operates a manufacturing complex that includes the most advanced factories for both LCD TVs and thin film solar cells.  A model of efficiency for all other manufacturers, the Sakai complex also includes the factories of key component suppliers and its own solar power generating system, all integrated into the same location.

Kozo Takahashi also said, “We do not seek merely to expand our business volume. Rather, we are dedicated to the use of our unique, innovative technologies to contribute to the culture, and welfare of people throughout the world. It is the intention of our corporation to grow hand-in-hand with our employees, encouraging and aiding them to reach their full potential and improve their standard of living.”

Sharp aims to be an eco-conscious organization in its business operations. For example, Sharp’s nationwide electronics recycling program provides free, convenient consumer recycling of Sharp televisions and other consumer audio and video products. Sharp is also a leading member of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s SmartWaySM Transport Partnership, a market-based partnership to reduce fuel use, greenhouse gas emissions, and air pollutants from the freight sector, and has received its annual “SmartWay Excellence Award” in each of the four years the award has been given.

It’s Sharp’s goal to achieve a truly ubiquitous, environmentally-conscious society through the use of our energy-efficient LCD TVs; to create consumer electronics, office equipment and appliances that are ever more energy-efficient; and to bring clean energy production to utility, commercial and residential customers through the use of our efficient solar panels. All this adds up to our vision of contributing to the world’s environment through our energy-saving and energy-creating products.

Katsuhiko Machida, CEO and Chair at Sharp Corporation says, “Sincerity is a virtue fundamental to humanity.

Harmony begins with strength.

Politeness is a merit.

Creativity promotes progress.

Courage is the basis of a rewarding life.”

Sharp Electronics Corporation does not seek merely to expand its business volume. Rather, the employees at sharp are dedicated to the use of our unique, innovative technology to contribute to the culture, benefits, and welfare of people throughout the world. It is the intention of Sharp Corporation to grow hand in hand with its employees, encouraging and aiding them to reach their full potential. Our future prosperity is directly linked to the prosperity of our customers, dealers and shareholders―indeed, the entire Sharp family.

Solar electricity works exactly the same as the electricity you buy from the utility company. You turn on lights, plug in lamps and power appliances the same way you do right now. In fact, if you didn’t see solar modules on the roof, you’d never notice any difference—except a lower electric bill.

Sharp’s President, Mikio Katayama believes, “By committing ourselves to the ideals of sincerity and creativity, we derive genuine satisfaction from our work, while making a meaningful contribution to society.”

Saving energy, saving resources, maximizing recycling, minimizing hazardous materials, that’s the Sharp commitment to the environment.
