Social Contribution Activities (Japan)

We’re committed to contributing to local societies by cleaning around the plants, participating in local activities, and supporting school education wherever possible.
In fiscal year 2016, we established a new "5-year plan for environmental and social contribution activities (2016-2020)", which has since been implemented.
We’re especially committed to ecosystem conservation activities such as extermination of invasive plants.

Education Support

At Sawa Plant, we accept educational visits and hands-on learning of "monozukuri" (craftsmanship) so that the students of local elementary, junior high, and high schools can understand how products are produced and experience operations. In fiscal year 2019, we welcomed 480 students from five elementary schools and junior colleges on educational visits, and eight students from three junior high and high schools for hands-on learning.

Control of Invasive Nonnative Species (Lanceleaf Tickseed)

In the City of Hitachinaka, there are many areas where lanceleaf tickseeds, an invasive species, grow.Invasive species are species which have been introduced to areas outside their original habitats and threaten biodiversity as identified by the government. It is prohibited to grow, store, import, transport or raise them.
We’ve participated in the extermination activity campaign of lanceleaf tickseeds hosted by the association aiming to improve the environment of Hitachinaka since fiscal year 2017. We will participate in extermination activities of invasive species wherever possible.
