Local Contributions

Social Background

Corporate enterprises can only exist based on a healthy society and sustained growth. Companies are therefore expected to contribute to creating and supporting a better society as members of said society. Amid diversifying communication methods due to the spread of social networking sites (SNS), companies‘ communication with communities and society is also becoming more important.

Objective of Hitachi's Community Efforts

Based on our desire to be a needed local presence as a corporate citizen, our Group continues to work on building positive relations by contributing to local communities through our business activities and using our resources to contribute to communities‘ growth and to solving the problems that these communities are confronting. Continuous communication with stakeholders like local communities leads to proper understanding of corporate activities and helps raise awareness and build a brand, which makes it an important asset in attracting customers, students, and employees over the long term.


1. Local Exchange through ”Cougars”

The Cougars women's basketball team conducts basketball clinics for students at nearby nursery schools, elementary schools, and junior high schools centered around the team's base of operations in Hitachinaka City, Ibaraki Prefecture. This activity is also being conducted throughout Japan. In addition to participating actively in activities for exchange with local residents, they are also contributing to the promotion of local sports.
Part of the team's support for people with disabilities includes annual visits to the social welfare service corporation Jiritsu Hoshikai’s Ibaraki Welfare Factory to hold social gatherings. In FY2021, the team entered a Hometown Partner agreement with Hitachinaka City. In addition to regional development by means of sports, they are promoting the popularization of games and contributing to improvement of local residents' health.

2. Collaboration with Katsuta Marathon

The Katsuta Marathon is held in January every year, and company employees participate as event management volunteers.
