Since the 50th anniversary of its founding in 2002, Dainichi has positively been working on community-based activities for the purpose of contributing to the development of society as a good corporate citizen and being a company that the society wants to exist.
Volunteer Cleaning Work in Local Community
Dainichi has been participating in Local Cleaning Project in Gifu since 2004, implemented by the Gifu Prefectural Government.
Local Cleaning Project in Gifu is to conduct road maintenance work in collaboration with local residents and companies, such as cleaning / beautification and snow removing works on certain road sections and taking care of trees and flowers.
We have been conducting the road maintenance work on assigned road sections adjacent to the headquarters every two months.
Social Infrastructure Maintenance Supporter
Social Infrastructure Maintenance Supporter, called Maintenance Supporter (MS), is a volunteer system established in 2009 by the Gifu Prefectural Government that local people in Gifu Prefecture participate to look over the local roads.
Dainichi has assigned its employees to 21 areas in Gifu Prefecture and established the system so that all the employees can identify the defects and damage on roads during commuting to work or business trips and report to the designated office of public work. We have been contributing to the development of safe and secure local communities.
Gifu Survey and Planning Association has entered into the Agreement on “Road Partner” with Gifu National Highway Office, Chubu Regional Development Bureau, Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT).
Road Partner is a volunteer activity which the road users provide the information to the Gifu National Highway Office when they identify such defects and damage on roads as potholes and breakage of guardrails.
Dainichi has been engaging in this volunteer activity as a member of Gifu Survey and Planning Association.
Nagaragawa Environmental Network Council
Nagara-gawa (the Nagara River) is originated from Mount Dainichi with its peak elevation of 1,709 meters above mean sea level, flowing approximately in the center of Gifu Prefecture to the south, and flowing into Ise Bay. It has been giving the great benefits to the development of culture and economy in the river basin.
The Council is the venue for exchange of views among stakeholders from upstream to downstream areas of the Nagara River, and comprises cities and towns along the river and cooperative organizations.
As a company having its base of business operation in the Nagara River basin, we have been enjoying the benefits of the Nagara River. Being aware of the importance of environmental conservation in the basin, Dainichi has become a member of the Council and has been engaging in the comprehensive environmental conservation activities.
