Social Contribution

make you always smile

We aspire for everyone to always smile in society. Then, we have identified "Spreading Smiles" as one of our key priorities and are actively engaged in a range of initiatives to accomplish this goal.

「always smile」
To see children around the world smile at all times

We are sponsoring the "Lighting Up Schools in Developing Countries Project" to bring smiles to the faces of children around the world.
There are still 1.3 billion people in the world who live without electricity. Children in these areas are unable to attend school when the classrooms are darkened by dusk or rain.

To help these children who are studying in such an environment without electricity, we rented out the roof of ROKI TECHNO Kyushu Works (Fukuoka Prefecture) as a place to install solar panels, and used the rent to install solar panels and light bulbs at an elementary school in the Republic of Benin (West Africa).

We hope that through our efforts, as many children as possible will be able to study in a better environment.

To see children around the world smile, we support activities of the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) for drinking water and sanitation.
Still today, as many as 13,700 children a day, 5 million children a year, are losing their lives before they turn five years old around the world. This means that one child dies every six seconds. One of the main reasons is diarrhea and other diseases caused by drinking contaminated water.
Our support helps to secure safe drinking water and provide relief supplies for save lives of children.

We donate to the "Gacha Gacha Project" run by Project Santa, a non-profit organization, to bring smiles to the faces of children battling illnesses.
In this project, Gacha Gacha is installed in hospitals to encourage children who are trying their best in treatment and rehabilitation. The idea was inspired by a story that nurses and childcare workers give small stickers and toys to children as rewards to soothe them and push them to do their best! This initiative was inspired by a story about a child who was told that he or she had to give a small sticker or toy as a reward.
We hope that children battling illnesses will recover as soon as possible.

To create a future with a global environment blessed with the bounty of nature

We have, since 2015, been taking part in the “JAPAN Water Style” program, which has been proposed by the Ministry of the Environment and advanced through cooperation between government and private sectors, aimed at protecting and maintaining Japan’s proud, rich water circulation for eternity.
To help create a society in which everyone can live comfortably—and with smile at all times—in a global environment blessed with abundant nature, we leverage our proprietary filtration technologies to solve issues associated with fluids used in factories while working hard to achieve technological breakthrough in the conservation of the water circulation environment.

Creating dream and smile through close connection with communities

We engage in activities to foster integration with the local community, prioritizing communication with residents, in order to ensure that people in the communities where our group operates are always able to always smile. As responsible corporate citizens, we value our relationship with the local community and strive to contribute to its well-being.

Empowering Local Communities through Sport

We have established the baseball team "ROKI TECHNO Toyama" in Toyama Pref., the place of foundation of our company. Their goal is becoming the baseball Champion in Japan, and they also organize baseball workshops for children in order to enhance their skills and foster a deeper appreciation for baseball. We continue to provide an opportunity to play baseball for children and also we aim for local revitalization through baseball. Furthermore, we support the professional baseball teams, Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks and Yokohama DeNA BayStars. We empathize with their efforts and continuous challenges to reach greater heights in pursuit of their dreams, and we also continue to challenge ourselves to achieve our dreams, too.

Supporting Medical Workers

We aim to bring peace of mind and smiles to local communities where our factories are located. In the spread of COVID-19 in Japan, we donated 50million JPY in total to local governments (Toyama Pref., Kamiichi Town in Toyama, Namerikawa City in Toyama, Fukuoka Pref., and Hirokawa Town in Fukuoka) to support medical workers and related parties who engages in treating and preventing the spread of COVID-19 in Sep. 2021. We were awarded the Medal with Dark Blue Ribbon for our contribution to the public interests by Japanese Cabinet Office in September 2022.

Support for reconstruction of the affected areas

We are working for the recovery of the areas affected by the disaster and for the people affected by the disaster to return to their normal lives as soon as possible.

We donated 5 million JPY to contribute to the reconstruction of Hirokawa town in Fukuoka Pref., which suffered extensive damage throughout the region as a result of record-breaking rainfall in July 2023.

We donated 10 million JPY to Toyama Prefecture, where our Hokuriku Plant, one of our production bases in Japan, is located, to support the areas affected by the Noto Peninsula Earthquake of 2024.

To teach the fun of sports and the joy of challenging to children.

He actives as athletes and teach children the fun of sports through lectures and lessons.
We believe that by telling children the joy of sports and the joy of challenging, they can use that experience when they find their dreams in the future.
We hope that the children will grow up healthy and aim to create a community where children's smiles overflow.
