Thoughts on activities to contribute to society
Based on our view that companies are members of society, we want to play a more active role in solving the issues faced by particular regions and society as a whole. To achieve this end, we plan to effectively use of all the resources made available to us and continuously contribute to society.
In May 2007, we established our social contribution committee for the purpose of giving back to the regions and communities in which we operate and expressing our gratitude to the customers and trading partners that sustain our business to all those in the regions.
Our social contribution activities are conducted in a wide range of fields, such as activities to educate children, social welfare activities, environmental conservation activities and humanitarian and disaster relief activities. Especially, positioning “Efforts which contribute to the healthy growth of the children” as important theme, we are engaged in the activities which help with education of the children at the center of our social contribution activities, wishing for the healthy growth of the children who will build a future. For example, we perform on-site science experiment lessons and environmental lessons at elementary schools in Osaka City, or near our plant office, and also support a variety of activities at child welfare facilities in the city. In overseas areas, we conduct activities, such as donating toys to an American organization that supports economically disadvantaged children and uniforms to several UK youth athletics teams. Through these activities, we are able to experience the smiling faces and laughter of these children. Employees that participate can also grow, develop, and recapture a sense of motivation and purpose for their work. All of our employees share in our commitment to continue these activities in order to contribute to society.
