NYK's Volunteer Point System Generates Donations to Three Charities for Children

May 25, 2017

During the meeting
NYK has made donations to three organizations dedicated to supporting the health and education of children.

NYK has a volunteer point system that was introduced in 2014 to encourage greater participation by the group’s officers and employees in activities that contribute to society. Points are granted for each form of contribution made. The company then tallies the points, converts them to a monetary amount, and makes donations totaling that amount to three charities chosen by ballot. In 2016, the charities below received the most votes from NYK volunteers.

- NPO Kid’s Door
An NPO that gathers student volunteers to provide educational support to economically disadvantaged children seeking admission into school or searching for employment in Japan. Website: http://www.kidsdoor.net/english/

- Michinoku Future Fund
A fellowship that provides support for college/university education and professional training to children who lost a parent in the Great East Japan Earthquake. Website: http://michinoku-mirai.org/en/index.html (English)

- International Children’s Action Network (ICAN)
An NPO tasked with providing medical care, education, and support for disaster-affected communities in the Philippines to improve the health and livelihoods of children. This organization also provides international education in Japan. Website: http://www.ican.or.jp/j/about.html (Japanese)

Organizations receiving support last year also recently visited NYK’s headquarters to report about their activities and how the donations were used.

NYK will make every effort to remain a good corporate citizen and enhance its corporate value for all stakeholders by continuing the company’s support of social contribution activities by employees.
