NJS Mid-term Management Plan

1. Business Environment

Since the foundation of NJS, we have been developing consultancy services for "water and environment industry" centered on water supply and sewerage systems for over 65 years. The water supply and sewerage system services have shifted from construction services to management services.
In the domestic market, while the coverage rate both for water supply and sewerage systems is improving, the aging of facilities has progressed and renewal and rehabilitation of these facilities is a critical task. In addition, as population declines, issues such as decline in revenues, operational efficiency and diminishing workforce are emerging, making effective and efficient business management a major issue. Furthermore, efforts to cope with intensifying natural disasters and the formation of a low-carbon society are also required.
In overseas emerging countries, the need for infrastructure improvements such as water supply and sewerage systems are increasing due to population increase and urbanization. At the same time, it is vital to manage, operate, rehabilitate, and improve the existing infrastructure and to establish a sound management.
The water supply and sewerage services are entering the era of infrastructure management, which comprehensively addresses the sustainable development of services. In infrastructure management, it is necessary to improve the efficiency by integrating the services of construction, management, and rehabilitation, to improve management efficiency including partnerships with the public and private sectors, and also to ensure safety and environmental conservation through disaster countermeasures. Diverse knowledge and technologies, beyond the conventional infrastructure development framework, are necessary to effectively promote these.
