Social Contribution Activities
DENTSU SOKEN endorses and supports activities that address various social issues. This is in accordance with Our Declaration of Conduct, which stipulates our business code of conduct from an ethical perspective, as well as the Dentsu Group Code of Conduct, compiled by the Dentsu Group to which we belong. In order to help realize a sustainable society, we fulfill our role as a corporate citizen, as well as our social responsibilities.
Donations Associated with Our Social Contribution Activities
Over the period spanning from 2016 through 2022, cumulative donations associated with DENTSU SOKEN's social contribution activities amounted to ¥15 million. For 2022, donations associated with DENTSU SOKEN's social contribution activities amounted to ¥3 million.
UNESCO’s World Terakoya Movement: Kakisonji-hagaki Project
The UNESCO World Terakoya Movement has been sponsored since 1989 by the National Federation of UNESCO Associations of Japan. The movement provides venues where children and illiterate adults, who are unable to attend school, can learn to read and write.
Recognizing that literacy is key to communication, the DENTSU SOKEN Group supports the movement and, together with 29 Dentsu Group companies, supports the Kakisonji-hagaki Project, which collects unused postcards, stamps, prepaid cards, and other items and converts them into donations in order to obtain funds for the support activities.
TABLE FOR TWO Initiatives
The DENTSU SOKEN Group endorses the TABLE FOR TWO Program designed to eliminate global hunger and reduce health issues related to unhealthy eating. Since October 2010, the employee cafeteria* at the DENTSU SOKEN Head Office had been providing healthy, nutritionally balanced menus to help improve lifestyle-related diseases.
In April 2012, we installed beverage vending machines at the DENTSU SOKEN Head Office as part of the TABLE FOR TWO Program. Part of the proceeds are donated for the purchase of school lunches for children in developing countries.
DENTSU SOKEN will continue to engage in social contribution through food, while promoting these activities to encourage more employees to participate.
World Food Programme (WFP)
The United Nations’ food aid agency, the WPF, is the world’s largest humanitarian aid organization.
DENTSU SOKEN serves as a WFP point of contact for Japan’s private sector and supports the program’s activities by participating in a council set up by the Japan Association for the World Food Programme, an NPO responsible for financial cooperation and public relations efforts.
Support People’s Hope Japan Activities
To help people in developing countries who are trying to become independent and live healthy lives, the mission of the international NGO People’s Hope Japan is to empower the people of Asia by providing education on health and medical care, as well as medical and health support in disaster relief.
As a global medical volunteer, the NGO is primarily engaged in the following activities:
Supporting health education (doctors/nurses/technicians, students/villagers and others)
Helping provide medical supplies (equipment, medicine, other items)
Providing support during emergencies and disasters
Recommending health and medical policies
DENTSU SOKEN, as a member of the NGO since 1998, endorses its activities.
Support PARANET Activities
General Incorporated Association Para-Sports Development Network of Japan (PARANET) was established to support Para-Athletes. DENTSU SOKEN, as a supporting member since 2021, endorses its activities.
Support JPPF Activities
DENTSU SOKEN has supported the activities of Japanese Para-Powerlifting Federation (JPPF), a specified nonprofit organization, since 2010 as a supporting member.
Natural Disaster Emergency Support
DENTSU SOKEN helps raise funds through a variety of aid groups in order to support people who have been affected by natural disasters.
PET Bottle Cap Collection Campaign
In July 2009, the DENTSU SOKEN Head Office launched an annual PET bottle cap collection campaign. Volunteers collect and recycle used PET bottle caps, which are sold to recycling enterprises, thereby providing the money for poor children in Third World countries to receive vaccines.
The bottle caps are collected at Head Office and the vaccines are purchased and provided through the NPO Cap Savings Box Promotion Network and the NPO that goes by the name of Japan Committee, Vaccines for the World’s Children.
It is said that if 400 caps are incinerated, rather than recycled, they generate 3,150g of CO2. This initiative thus contributes to society by reducing CO2 emissions.
In Tokyo’s Minato Ward, where the DENTSU SOKEN Head Office is located, we take part in cleaning activities each spring and fall, together with other nearby companies. This not only helps protect the environment, but also helps the community by removing litter, such as empty cans and bottles, as well as cigarette butts, that passers-by drop on the sidewalk.
