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.
Dialogue with local communities

RC community dialogue
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 2019, such dialogue was held in the Kawasaki area, in which representatives of the Kawasaki Plant participated.
Traffic safety commendation

Commendation ceremony
At the Kawasaki Plant, employees offer traffic safety instructions on the streets of the neighborhood twice a year during the period of the national traffic safety campaign, in cooperation with the Kawasaki Waterfront Traffic Safety Association.
This activity has been continued since 2009 and received the commendation in 2019.
We will continue to deepen ties with local communities and make various contributions, including for traffic safety.
