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

Global Sustainability Meetings

In order to promote sustainability management throughout the entire Group, we hold Global Sustainability Meetings to discuss and share information about ESG issues with our global subsidiaries. In fiscal 2022, meetings were held online twice. In April 2023, the meeting was held in-person, and a total of 138 people, including officers and executives from our global subsidiaries, visited Shiga Works.

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

In fiscal 2022, we held a seminar with an expert focusing on the integration of business and SDGs. The event was recorded, and the video is available on our internal network for employees to access at any time.

Communication through comics

We distribute comics to inform our employees about our company policies, the importance of sustainability, and the state of society in an accessible and easy-to-understand manner. In fiscal 2022, a total of three comics about Daifuku’s value creation were distributed. These comics 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 Sustainability Action Program

In order to make environmental contributions more accessible, Daifuku established its Daifuku Eco-Action Program in fiscal 2012, which awards points to employees for participating in environmental activities. A variety of activities and events are offered through the program, and in fiscal 2022, a total of 10,132 people participated in volunteer and environmental learning activities. Through this program, employees can exchange the points they earned for eco-friendly products and other rewards. Daifuku also donates a monetary amount equivalent to the total number points gained by employees to external organizations. In fiscal 2023, the program was renamed as the Daifuku Sustainability Action Program, and we are working to expand the scope of our activities to include social contribution activities in addition to environmental activities.
