A Message from Our HR Department

We hear the word “sustainability” more often in recent years but actually putting it into practice is really quite difficult. Euglena Co., Ltd. has taken up the challenge of achieving sustainability through our business. We are a biotechnology company that aims to solve social issues.

We do not prioritize profit over society, or vice-versa.
We plan to create a sustainable future by achieving both of these factors simultaneously.

This goal, our dream, will not end unfulfilled. We have succeeded in establishing outdoor mass cultivation technology for Euglena microalgae for food use, the first of its kind in the world; completed Japan’s first demonstration plant for producing bio-jet and diesel fuel; and created the new under-18 Chief Future Officer (CFO) position among our other daily activities to create a sustainable Earth. And we will continue this endeavor to achieve our dream.

If you are the type of person who feels that taking up the challenge of working in an environment with no precedent sounds interesting and is something worth doing, you should come and work with us at Euglena.

We are looking forward to your applications and hope to work with you in the future.

Our Guiding Principle: “Euglism”

Euglena has created three guiding principles under the title of “Euglism,” which focus on the Euglena philosophy of “Sustainability First.” This philosophy is an ideal for how Euglena wants to be as a company. Euglena has also created the “Euglism: Leader Edition” as guiding principles for our leaders who spearhead solutions to social issues through our company’s business growth.

—just practice!
Evolve and take on new challenges every day.
Change yourself, change the world around you, and change tomorrow.
3. For all the “euglee”
—one for all, all for “euglee”
Anyone who shares our dream for the future is a “euglee.”
We act for the health and smiles of all “euglee.”

“Euglism”: Leader Edition

1. Dream and be a conduit for passion
—maximum conductivity!
We are a group aiming to make a sustainability-first world a reality.
Get in sync with the management team, dream, get involved, and communicate with colleagues with the same passion as the management team.
2. Work together to create a world-class place
—infinite growth rate
World-class thinking and actions are needed in order to make “Sustainability First” a reality.
Every member of Euglena must work together to create an environment that enables optimal performance and continuous growth.
3. Do it until it’s done
—have you done it 501 times?
A sustainability-first world where profitability and sociality coexist.
Until that is achieved, we must never give up, but instead continue to investigate and try any and every possible method.
