Ashita Award for CSR Excellence

Activities for social contributions, that we do globally, undergo evaluation for 9 criteria, including purpose, employee participation, originality, continuity, effects on society, and cooperation with outside organizations. Every December, the activities that produce particularly noteworthy results receive an award for excellence in social contribution (Toshiba's “Ashita” Award) with a commendation from corporate CEO.

In accordance with the yearly awards ceremony, informative exchange meetings are hosted by the award-winning offices and the Group companies. Here we exchange opinions on promoting more effective activities for social contribution.
