The Story of Sakichi Toyoda
Sakichi Toyoda, the founder of Toyota Industries Corporation, possessed a strong ambition to contribute to society from his days as a youth. He had devoted his 63-year-long life to invention.
We want to be a part of making our communities healthy and vibrant for all people. Our social welfare events are designed to increase supportive interaction among people and between people and the natural environment.
It is our wish that the youth of today enrich their minds and hearts so that they may become effective leaders in the next generation. We hold events such as monozukuri (manufacturing) events in conjunction with a local volunteer organization, mini concert visits, and more.
We encourage the use of domestically thinned lumber, have our employees participate in forest conservation activities, support cleanup projects on the streets around our plants and more to help contribute to a more sustainable society.
Toyota Industries is also active in cooperative international projects, cultural and artistic pursuits, and a wide variety of other social contribution activities in addition to those in the three core areas listed above.
We make communicating with regional citizens one of our top priorities, carrying out our activities with the aim of making these local communities a better place.
