Message from the President
In our CSR activities, rather than merely responding to different requests for financial assistance, we have decided to focus on education and on the environment.
In 2017, we helped to improve school infrastructure, and provided support for a variety of activities to help local communities in the vicinity of our factories. At our Tamil Nadu Plant, with the participation of company employees, local communities and schoolchildren we planted a total of 4,700 trees, launching a unique “Forever Forest” project.
We are committed to continuing to fulfil our responsibilities to society as a whole.
By securing participation from all stakeholders, striving to realize comprehensive change, and focusing on communities’ real needs in regard to education and the environment, we are striving to implement CSR initiatives that help local communities in sustainable ways.
