Participated in “Chiba CSR summit 2015” as a panelist

Our chairperson Ms. Takahara participated in “Chiba CSR summit 2015 – The wisdom to survive post-2020” at Chiba city business support center on October 20, 2015, Tuesday.

This summit meeting was held to create an opportunity to consider the system to collaborate between citizen, company, and government in order to make our future regional community sustainable.

“In order to solve regional problems such as population decrease, aging population and lower birth rate, exhausted regional economy, and destruction of natural environment, every one of us who live in the regional community need to become aware of our social responsibility (SR). Each individual sector brings back what they can do to complement each other to solve problems in the regional community, which results in the enhancement of the value of the region.
We will consider what we need now especially to face the influence on the regional economy after Tokyo Olympic in 2020 and regional challenges that is becoming complex and diverse and to create the sustainable regional community. We will seek the wisdom to survive post-2020 through each role of company, government, and citizen from the view point of CSR.

Usually we seldom have an opportunity to receive feedback of our activities, but we were given encouraging words and feedback from the people inside and outside of Isumi city this day. That was stimulating.

We appreciate the member of an executive committee who kindly invited us to this meeting.
