Public Use of Facilities, Corporate Fairs and Festivals
Opening up Company Facilities
Responding to requests from residents, we at the Toshiba Komukai Complex and the Toshiba Yokohama Complex provide access to our physical education facilities, rehabilitation training rooms for people with disabilities, exercise training rooms at the health centers, and little league training facilities for local community associations.
At Nishishiba Electric Co., Ltd., we have opened our grounds to the local people. （Nishishiba Electric also opens its field to the community.）
Toshiba Visual Solutions Corporation installs lanterns along a street lined with some 40 cherry trees so local residents may also enjoy viewing the blossoms at night.
Company parking lots are opened up so local associations can hold festivals at Japan Semiconductor, and for local marathon races and school cultural festivals at the Imabari Office of Toshiba Lighting & Technology.
In-house sales events
In-house sales events are held by NPOs and welfare centers in which disabled people make things like pastries, bread, or handicrafts and sell them to our employees, as a way to support financial independence for disabled people. We are widening the circle of support at our main offices by selling fair trade products and local produce from the prefectures that were struck by the Great East Japan Earthquake.
