Education and Awareness-Raising Activities

The Daifuku Group positions our three-year business plan and the Sustainability Action Plan as the two cornerstones of our management strategy, and each and every one of our employees aims to contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In practicing sustainability management that contributes to society in a broad range of areas and balances social values and economic values, the Group works to facilitate understanding among our employees through the measures below.

Raising Awareness about Sustainability

Rank-based training

Lectures and workshops on sustainability are held by job level for new hires, mid-career employees, and mid-level employees.

Organizing seminars with experts

We organized four seminars with experts from November 2020 to February 2021 to improve understanding of the SDGs. The events were recorded and the videos are available on our internal network for employees to access at any time.

Communication through videos and manga

We distribute videos and manga to inform our employees about our company policies, the importance of sustainability, and the larger state of society in an accessible manner. In fiscal 2021, a total of six videos and five manga were distributed along five themes to promote the spread of the newly formulated Sustainability Action Plan in the Group. These videos are available in multiple languages and posted on the company network so that they can be accessed by Group employees at any time.

Raising Awareness about Environmental Issues

Daifuku Eco-Action Program

In 2012, Daifuku established its Daifuku Eco-Action Program, which rewards eco-points for environmental activities undertaken by employees in a bid to foster an environmental mindset. With a variety of ecological activities provided in each region, we recorded 11,608 instances of employees participating in volunteer activities and environmental learning events in fiscal 2021. Eco-points gained by employees can be exchanged for green goods and other rewards. In addition, we donate an amount equivalent to the total points gained to external organizations.
