Our CSR activities
As a company that does business rooted in the community, it is an important mission to fulfill our social responsibilities and contribute to community development. Based on this concept, Shigeru is promoting CSR activities, and takes the initiative in participating in local activities.
Shigeru has participated in “Town Watcher Activity” for around ten years. Every weekday for thirty minutes before starting to work, employees stand at intersections near the main plant, and guard local commuters and school children. On the first Sunday in September, we participate in “Kanayama Mountain Cleanup” as a member of the Subaru Community Exchange Association. We clean and clear away the undergrowth on Kanayama Mountain, which is a symbol of Ota City.
Shigeru is also promoting activities to revitalize communities by supporting sports events. We support city-organized events, including the autumn “Ota Sports and Recreation Festival”. We have sponsored B1 Gunma Crane Thunders Supporters’ Association, which has the home ground in Ota City, J2 Thespakusatsu Gunma, SUPER GT300, and Subaru WRX STI rally team.
We have received ISO14001 certification, an international standard for environmental management systems. We are working to reduce environmental risks in our corporate activities. For example, the lighting at the head office and each plant is all LED. The corridors are equipped with lights with motion sensors to reduce power consumption. At the Ichinokura Plant, we are promoting activities to reduce waste by recycling the waste generated from product manufacturing.
In the future, we will build a system based on SDGs in each department, and work on corporate activities aiming for carbon neutrality. We fulfill our social responsibilities by considering environmental protection at various areas of the organization.
