I would like to express my appreciation to you all for cooperating in "DENSO Community Service Day." This activity was started to contribute to a better world, through ethical business activities and good corporate citizenship, and was launched in commemoration of DENSO's 55th anniversary in 2004 to promote social contribution activities.
Under the slogan, "Turn Compassion into Action," last year, approximately 55,000 associates in 32 countries and regions/131 companies participated in various activities focusing on the environment, education, and support of the socially disadvantaged. Again, I would like to thank all the participating companies and associates for their efforts.
The DENSO group is a global organization operating around the world with about 170,000 associates. In order for the DENSO Group companies to continue operations in our communities, to be trusted and respected by stakeholders in our communities, it is important that you pay more attention to what's going on in your communities.
Additionally, you are continuously required to take actions to solve social problems there.
Promoting activity period is set from November 01-January 31 in FY2017.
Let me ask you to help expand our Community Service Day by connecting your "compassion" to your local community.
Thank you for your continued participation and cooperation in this program.
President and CEO
