Social Contribution

Social Contribution Policy
Guided by the Nippon Shokubai Group Mission of "TechnoAmenity - Providing affluence and comfort to people and society with our unique technology, " we have adopted a number of social initiatives. These include maintaining clear and open communication with the public as a good corporate citizen that protects the natural environment, works in harmony with local communities and trains the next generation.

Working in Harmony with Local Communities

Believing that establishing a relationship of trust with local community residents is crucial for stable business operation at each plant, we take various opportunities to communicate with them.

Cleanup campaign

Cleanup activity
We conduct periodic cleanups of the environs around all our plants as a local beautification initiative.
Sweet potato harvest party

Children harvest potatoes
We grow sweet potatoes in the potato fields we have created in the green yard of the Himeji Plant.
Every year, we invite neighborhood kindergartners and nursery school children to enjoy harvesting our crop of sweet potatoes. We have been holding this activity since 1971, as it has helped us forge strong ties in the community. In fact, some of the children who harvested potatoes in the past are now employed with us.(*)

(*) In the fiscal year 2020, the activities were not held to prevent infection from spreading of COVID-19.

Dialogue with local communities

Community Dialogue Proceedings
Nippon Shokubai participates in the community dialogue undertaken by the JCIA’s Responsible Care Committee and introduces the corporate RC initiatives to the participants from neighborhood associations, local governments, NPOs, industry organizations and companies in areas in which our plants are located. Through such communication, we aim to enhance mutual understanding.
In fiscal 2020, to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the event was held in the Himeji area in writing.
