Vision and Direction for Social Engagement

We help the underprivileged members of the community. We also conduct beach cleanup campaigns and help schools and local neighborhoods clean their environment, fully utilizing our strength to raise public awareness on environmental protection and recycling. In 2021, the volunteered hours among the volunteers of all business sites amounted to 1,320 hours. The followings are the key events held in 2021.
