Communicating with Local Communities

At each of its business sites, the Hitachi Chemical Group holds briefings to explain its business and CSR activities to local residents and hear their opinions. It also offers tours of its factories or introduction of our business sites, and issues environmental reports to introduce the CSR activities, including environmental activities conducted at its business sites.

In addition, employees of Group companies get involved in activities to clean local areas with the intention of creating towns that are enjoyable and relaxing. We also invite local residents to festivals held at business sites as a part of our other numerous activities to give back to the community.

Environmental Dialogue Meeting with Local Communities

The 12th meeting on environmental issues with local residents was held in June 2017 at Hitachi Chemical’s Shimodate Works in Goshomiya. Thirty people took part as representatives of community groups, local governments and agencies, schools, and other organizations. The meeting included a presentation on Hitachi Chemical’s environment, safety, and community service activities using “Shimodate Works Environmental Report 2017” and a tour of a brake pad factory. Feedback from participants included the following: “I was able to understand how Hitachi Chemical and its sites are conducting local contribution and environmental activities” and “I am impressed with the fact that the site is strongly committed to environmental activities and has already made achievements.” We plan to improve the content of these programs and continue running them so that we can build a strong relationship based on trust with local residents.

Language school students visit Hitachi Chemical headquarters

In November 2017, 16 students and two teachers of Naganuma School, a Japanese-language school in Tokyo, visited Hitachi Chemical’s headquarters as part of a corporate research project.

It was the fifth session of the program, which has started in 2013. The Japanese-language students were from Portugal, Thailand, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Korea. They participated in a group discussion with three foreign employees of Hitachi Chemical and took an office tour. The students asked the employees a variety of questions, including how they had improved their Japanese language ability, why they had chosen to work for a Japanese company, and the important points to be noted regarding cultural differences between their countries and Japan. The questions indicated their strong interest in working in a Japanese corporation.
