Symbiosis with Local Communities
As a good corporate citizen, we aim to be an open company that engages in dialog with society and discloses information appropriately. We also actively implement social contribution activities. In our global business, we respect the cultures and customs of the countries in which we do business and strive to do business based on a foundation of mutual trust with local communities.
Examples of Activities
At our Akita Unit we offer factory tours to members of the community, providing an overview of the unit’s business and environmental activities. As part of our acceptance of internship students, our Takatsuka Unit also provides factory tour opportunities.
Traffic safety instruction
Our Akita Unit offers traffic safety monitoring instruction during traffic safety week.
Community cleanup activities
Both our Takatsuka and Akita Units regularly clean up and weed their surrounding areas (once or twice per year), striving toward the beautification of the community.
Development support activities
The Akita Unit provides ongoing work experience opportunities (lasting three to five days) for local senior high school and university students that will shortly be entering the working world. They also provide work experience opportunities to students with disabilities.
Blood donation activities
The Akita and Takatsuka Units conduct blood donation activities with the cooperation of the Japanese Red Cross Society , contributing toward addressing the issue of a lack of blood at medical frontlines.
Disaster prevention activities
The Takatsuka Unit organizes its own in-house fire-fighting team that trains regularly so as to be able to respond swiftly when a fire occurs within the unit or in the neighboring community. The team also participates in the dezomeshiki fire-fighting ceremony organized by the local fire department during the New Year period.
Community contribution activities
ABLIC undertakes community contribution activities in Akita Prefecture where our main unit is located. At Daisen where the unit is located, we provide annual sponsorship for the Omagari Fireworks Festiva l, a fireworks show that has been taking place since 1910. We also support the Akita Northern Happinets , a professional basketball (B.LEAGUE ) team based in Akita Prefecture. We hope to contribute toward the community’s invigoration and development through supporting such cultural and sports activities.
