Our Long-Term Vision GMB2030

Scroll

Since our founding in 1890, Kubota has been working to achieve solutions to social issues related to food, water, and the environment.
In recent years, many kinds of problems have become complexly intertwined in society.
To confront these increasingly serious social issues and to protect our sustainable everyday lives, Kubota has established GMB2030, our long-term vision indicating the roles that Kubota should play and the guidelines for our group-wide efforts.

The Kubota Group will strive to realize GMB2030 so that it can become a Global Major Brand (GMB), meaning “a company that can make the greatest contribution to society by earning the trust of the greatest number of customers,” which we consider to be our ideal role.

Kubota’s Ideal Roles

An “Essentials Innovator for Supporting Life,” Committed to a Prosperous Society and Cycle of Nature

This is the meaning contained within the vision to which we aspire.

Committed to a Prosperous Society and Cycle of Nature

With renewed awareness that we have contributed to solutions through our businesses in the fields of food, water, and the environment throughout the over 130 years since our founding, we will continue our support for prosperity in society and the cycle of nature.

Essentials Innovator for Supporting Life

We make it our mission to continuously contribute to society in the fields of food, water, and the environment, and we strive to become an essentials innovator that is indispensable to all who use Kubota products and services in these fields.

The Value that Kubota Provides

In light of the many social issues throughout the world that are growing in complexity and severity, including environmental problems such as global warming and climate change, increasing demand for food and shortage of water resources due to population growth, and global economic and political issues, we are focusing on four megatrends.

The Megatrends in Our Focus
  • Balancing Economic Growth with Resource Recycling
    (Circular Economy)
    Unlike conventional economies that lead to mass-production, mass-consumption, and mass-disposal, the circular economy preserves and maintains the value of products and resources for as long as possible and minimizes the generation of waste.
  • Net Zero Greenhouse Gas Emissions
    (Carbon Neutrality)
    This approach seeks to avoid changes in the total amount of carbon on Earth. It refers to using energy and building systems in ways that keep CO2 emissions and absorption at net zero.
  • A Society Where the Marginal Cost of Products is Close to Zero through Recycling and Sharing
    A society in which the marginal cost, or costs incurred when production of goods increases, is reduced to zero through recycling, sharing, and IoT.
  • Formation of New Small- and Medium-Sized Communities that are Not Obsessed Only with Global Capitalism
    Forming a fragmented, community-based society through a shift from centralized power to autonomous models by promoting technological innovation in social infrastructure fields.

For these four megatrends, Kubota provides value to the world in the following three areas.

Value01

Providing solutions to support infrastructure in the fields of food, water, and the environment

Value02

Realizing development of a sustainable society and a natural circulation loop

Value03

Contributing to resolving social issues in a variety of communities

The Kubota Group’s Initiatives

We will expand the products, services, and service areas of our existing businesses in ways that are better suited to society.
We will then take on initiatives to provide three new solutions by linking our products and services in the fields of food, water, and the environment.

  • Enhance the productivity and safety of food

  • Promote the circulation of water resources and waste

  • Improve urban and living environments

Example of Our Solutions

In our smart agriculture business that is already under development, we aim to improve crop yields, crop quality, and agricultural productivity by providing equipment with advanced sensing functions that link data, as well as an automated farm management system that utilizes AI. We will also help to reduce food loss through an open agri-platform that collaborates with the agricultural sector as well as other industries and by providing solutions for the entire food value chain.
