There is a deep well on the premises where the Hachioji General Plant, and the Group companies, Chilldy Co., Ltd. and the Hachioji Office of Carry Net Co., Ltd. are located. The water from the well, under strict daily water quality supervision, is being used in the plants and the offices.
The Hachioji General Plant, in preparation for water supply stoppages due to various causes including natural disasters, has made an arrangement to offer this well water as drinking water, by entering into the “Disaster Control Measure-related Agreement” with the City of Hachioji. This arrangement is part of Nissui’s regional contribution activities borne from the desire to be of service to the people living in the same community in emergency situations as well as in ordinary times.
Nissui, with the cooperation of its executives and employees, the (NAC) Nippon Suisan Labor Union and through the social gathering of maritime employees, donates to the Scholarship Foundation for Orphans from Marine Accidents each year since its foundation in 1970.
Since 2017, Nissui has been cooperating with the Mirai (Future) Class offered by the NPO, Oyaji Nippon (Note). Mirai Class offers classes on “Career Education,” in which speakers lecture on what it means to work and the goals of working from the perspective of a corporate person, at the elementary and junior high schools in Tokyo. Each employee talks about Nissui’s unique operations and what he/she has learned from his/her experiences. By communicating those stories in his/her own words to the children, each employee is helping the children to mentally prepare to become working persons in the future.
(Note) NPO Oyaji Nippon: An organization that supports the Oyaji-no-kai (middle-aged/elderly men’s associations) around the country and carries out activities that contribute to the sound growth of children.
On August 1, 2018, 12 employees from the Chushikoku Branch took part in the cleanup of the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park sponsored by the Hiroshima City Public Health Promotion Conference. Cleanup activities were conducted for about an hour after offering a silent prayer to the victims of the atomic bomb. This was the second time the Chushikoku Branch participated in this event, and the employees were able to pick up more trash than the previous year.
For the purpose of contributing to the development of the marine industry in New Zealand, Nissui provides in-house training for young Maori, a minority group of the nation.
We have accepted 1 or 2 trainee(s) every year since 2002. During the one-year training, trainees visit or stay in fish farms and research facilities nationwide to participate in practical work and lectures ranging from catching, farming, processing, selling and distributing. The training program also focuses on understanding Japanese culture and consumer's needs as well as Japanese language study.
Trainees who have completed the training return to New Zealand, and actively engage in the home marine industry and other relevant businesses.
