Social Contribution Activities

 GOALS

Why

The Chiyoda Group is actively seeking solutions to global issues in order to help create a better society. This is not just a matter of social contributions through business. We will also continue working closely with local communities to contribute to the sustainable development of society.

How

Taking ‘CSR promotion by all members together’ as our motto, and with collaboration and coexistence with local communities as our objective, we will continue our corporate existence as a contributor to the sustainable development of society. By having our employees participate in these activities, we are also heightening their motivation to contribute to society and developing human capital that will be capable of contributing not just to business performance but to society as a whole.
