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 13th meeting on environmental issues with local residents was held in June 2018 at Hitachi Chemicalís Shimodate Works in Goshomiya. Thirty-six people took part as representatives of community groups, local governments and agencies, schools and other organizations. The meeting included a presentation on Hitachi Chemicalís environment, safety and community service activities using the “Shimodate Works Environmental Report 2018” and a factory tour. Feedback from participants included the following: “I learned a lot from the event, especially about the various advanced technologies introduced by the company” and “I understand the company is very considerate to the environment by taking appropriate steps such as drainage control. It's impressive.” 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 December 2018, 15 students and two teachers of Naganuma School, a Japanese-language school in Tokyo, visited the Innovation Center as part of a corporate research project.

It was the sixth session of the program, which started in 2013. The Japanese-language students were from Vietnam, Switzerland, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Korea. At the Innovation Center, they learned firsthand about technologies developed by Hitachi Chemical, and participated in a group discussion with two foreign employees from Hitachi Chemical's headquarters. Feedback from the students included the following: “From the group discussion on job hunting and company life in Japan, I've gotten an image of working in the country,” and “I'm particularly intrigued by the product development episode describing the efforts to satisfy customer needs.” Many of the participantsí comments indicated their strong interest in working in a Japanese corporation.
