Publishing a Better Future

Since its founding in 2015, we have been working on creating positive impacts for the future of our customers and society through our content and media.

Our mission, “Publishing a better future” means making a better future “public.” Harch publishes hundreds of articles every month and it means we have the same number of opportunities to make the future of our customers and society better.

When we click the “publish the article” button on our media, we always ask ourselves if this article can change the future of all the stakeholders who support us towards a better direction.

Facing various environmental and social challenges, the role and the responsibility of media companies are getting bigger than ever. We embrace the concept of “constructive journalism” and put our editorial focus on not only issues but also solutions so that we can play a role in making the world a better place as both an information provider and a practitioner.
