The Asahi Kasei Group works to honor and respect the local culture of each community where our operations are based, and to maintain effective dialog and communication with community members. Through networking events, plant tours, and fellowship activities, we enhance understanding of our company among the communities where we are located and receive valuable opinions regarding the management of our operations.
Administrative departments at the Group’s manufacturing sites lead communication with the communities around our plants, holding periodic networking events, plant tours, and other activities.
We offer plant tours to provide better understanding of our operations and the measures we implement for the environment and safety. (Tours are not available at all plants.)
Dialog and interaction
At each of the Group’s main production sites, we engage in dialog and interaction that includes discussion with local residents through bodies such as local governments, providing public access to our facilities such as sports halls and grounds and parking lots, and holding events.
NPO supporting education of the next generation
In 2009, some interested members from the Asahi Kasei retirees association formed “Hagemashitai” (Encouragers), a volunteer group for providing support with schoolwork, and began providing help with math and science schoolwork to junior high school students in Nobeoka, Miyazaki Prefecture. In 2012, Hagemashitai was incorporated as an NPO and is expanding in size and continuing its activities still today. Asahi Kasei supports the NPO.
