We are conducting local cleaning activities at each business site. The TOTO headquarters, Kokura No.1 Plant and Kokura No.2 Plant entered a volunteer support program with the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism to contribute to pleasant community development.
In Kujukurihama in Chiba Prefecture, we are participating in activities to develop protected forests that died in the tsunami during the Great East Japan Earthquake. We are also making a contribution with the hope of restoring the environment in the disaster areas by looking after acorns from the Tohoku region, which TOTO employees are planting in various regions.
In 2008, we established TOTO China Water Environment Fund under the China Environmental Protection Foundation. We provide water-saving educational activities , donate sanitary facilities to orphan asylums and more. In 2014, we constructed facility for the supply of drinking water for elementary and junior highschool in Gansu Province,
Employees at all TOTO business sites participate in environmental activities with close ties to the locality, such as planting trees in mangroves in Malaysia, coastal cleaning in Singapore, and tree-planting and cleaning activities throughout China.
We are implementing environmental education aimed at children, such as lessons held at local elementary schools and eco-classrooms at plants. These activities communicate the importance of the local environment and water resources through familiar areas where water is used in daily life.
