Tenth Anniversary Community Service Programs
To express our appreciation for the kind understanding and support shown by the local communities over the last ten years, the officers and employees of Sumitomo Dainippon Pharma have developed various community service activities through the year. Honoring our pledge "to build harmonious relationships with society" as stated in our Declaration of Conduct, we will follow through on this program with a view to deepening our involvement and dialogue with society.
Volunteer Service at Welfare Centers
As members of a life science company, officers and employees of Sumitomo Dainippon Pharma took part as volunteers at a number of welfare centers for the disabled, senior citizen and children. The assistant services will encompass both the daily care and special events of the centers.
Environment Conservation Activities
Participation in environment protection initiatives to address climate change and conserve biodiversity
Please check here for "Biodiversity" in more detail.
"Owls Forest Restoration Project" of Kishiwada City, Osaka
This five-year collaborative project between the city of Kishiwada and Sumitomo Dainippon Pharma aims to conserve the natural environment of a hilly section of Kishiwada and bring back the forest where people and owls live happily together and children enjoy running after dragonflies and butterflies. The site had been neglected and the indigenous flora invaded by rampant bamboos.
"Fukadani Park Satoyama Conservation Project" of Suzuka City, Mie
This project is promoted by the Environment Department of the City of Suzuka, where one of Sumitomo Dainippon Pharma's principal production facilities is located. To help restore the quercus serrata forest of the park to be rich in biodiversity and a safe natural playground for children, our employees will be thinning and weeding the forest.
Other Neighborhood Services
At the office or at home, we made dolls and wooden blocks and handing them out to children fighting diseases in hospital beds or otherwise growing up in nursery homes and the like. In the same spirit, we actively participated in street cleanup, charity walk and similar community activities.
