Social Contributions

Basic Policy

Under the Taikisha Management Vision, Taikisha positions the community and society as important stakeholders and proactively promotes activities to respect culture and customs as well as contribute to their development in addition to participation in community and social contribution activities.
Taikisha is conducting various activities toward resolution of issues faced by communities and society and their development as a member of society (corporate citizen) that builds a favorable relationship with communities and society and coexists harmoniously with society.

Social Contributions

  • Support for the NPO Environmental Veterans Firm
    As part of its social contribution efforts for environmental preservation, Taikisha started offering support in 2017 to the Environmental Veterans Firm (EVF), a nonprofit organization with the aim of supporting sustainable development by “custom-made” environmental energy-system designed for the local area.
    The EVF is a group of senior scientists and engineers who have been involved in environmental technologies. Capitalizing on the expertise of such members, it proposes ideas to solve environmental issues addressed by various organizations in Japan and abroad.
    Going forward, Taikisha will step up its support by developing joint businesses with the EVF.

Initiatives in Overseas Business Offices

  • GEICO’s Youth Employment Support Project
    Italy’s Geico S.p.A. launched the J-NEXT Project in 2011 to help the local youth get employed by hiring young graduate engineers and offering them professional and personal growth paths in Geico. To broaden the scope, Pardis Foundation was set up in 2014 and gave birth to Gate Bridge Project, an initiative to help high-school and university graduates aged 18 to 30 find jobs at other companies in the local territory.
    The goal for both projects was to provide 100 young people with employment opportunities by 2020, but this was achieved in 2017 — three years ahead of schedule.

・Cultivation of Crops on the Premises of Taikisha Engineering India Ltd.
