Social contribution activities

Noritake Garden

Part of the Noritake Company headquarters site is open to the public as "Noritake Garden." This garden, planted with more than 6,000 trees over approximately 22,000 square meters, is a complex facility that was established at the founding site based on feelings of gratitude for local people and the desire to protect the environment. It is popular as an industrial tourist facility and a place of relaxation in the city, and since its opening in 2001, it has been visited by more than 7 million people.
Also, we have signed an agreement with Nagoya City to act as a temporary evacuation site for people who have difficulty returning home in the event of a large-scale disaster. In this way the facility provides peace of mind to local residents.

We were authorized by the "Conservation System of Civic Green Spaces"

In December 2018, this was the first private-sector facility in the Chubu region that was certified as a "civic green space" by the Conservation System of Civic Green Spaces.

* Conservation System of Civic Green Spaces
In urban areas, there is a shortage of green and open spaces that are indispensable for creating a good urban environment. To solve this problem by promoting the conservation and creation of green spaces and making effective use of vacant lots, the Conservation System of Civic Green Spaces installs and manages open spaces as "civic green spaces" for use by local residents, based on an installation and management plan authorized by the municipal mayor.

Regional contribution at Noritake Sri Lanka

Noritake established Noritake Sri Lanka in 1972 as a tableware manufacturer in Sri Lanka. Since then, the company has continued to interact with the community in various ways, including making donations to hospitals and schools, and carrying out environmental activities.
In fiscal 2018, with the support of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, we won the Gold Award in the CSR / Sustainability category by JASTECA (Japan Sri Lanka Technical and Cultural Association) that promotes industrial and cultural exchanges between Japan and Sri Lanka. This was a result of recognition of our contribution to sustainable development and promoting the long-term interests of Sri Lanka, such as reducing CO2 in our business activities and our tree-planting campaign.

Support for international students

To support students from overseas, we participate in the "International Student Acceptance Program for Employee Dormitories" organized by the Foundation of Corporate Friendship Network for Foreign Students and provide accommodation for international students attending universities and graduate schools. This provides low cost accommodation for international students, and for the employees who live in the employee dormitories, it serves as an opportunity to communicate with foreigners.
