Partnerships with Local Communities
Nippon Steel has a long history of managing steelworks all over Japan in harmony with local communities. With the objective of contributing to communities where we are based and realizing their sustainable growth along with our business based on good relationships, we are promoting social activities with emphasis on assisting the community’s environmental preservation, sports and cultural activities, and education. As a trusted and responsible member of the community, we have distinctive social contribution program activities. These programs include promoting the creation of “hometown forests” by planting trees and shrubs in communities, the operation of regional sports clubs that increase community spirit, musical activities at Kioi Hall, and by endowing a university donated course (which also contributes to one of our business strategies, “enhancement of our technological superiority.”)
We create hometown forests to help prevent global warming, in addition to conserving biodiversity when so doing.
We support local baseball, volleyball, rugby, judo, football, and other athletic teams.
We have consistently supported art and culture for many years.
We conduct various activities to make children and students, who lead the future, better understand the steel industry.
We help develop various environmental relations in the international and local communities.
We communicate with the public with the means of participating in environmental exhibitions, publishing science and technology brochures, and conducting philanthropic activities.
We cooperate and support a wide range of activities in academic and educational areas, and for art and culture, sports, local communities, welfare, and disaster support.
We practice enviromental preservation activities and communication activities that are tailored to the characteristics of each region.
