LIXIL Community Day

In 2017, we started LIXIL Community Day, when executives and employees from all workplaces and regions around the world take part in social contribution activities during working hours based on the three priority areas in the LIXIL Group’s Corporate Responsibility strategy.

In the first year, approximately 3,500 employees from 15 countries took part worked for a total of 8,625 hours in 70 diverse projects, including installing hygienic toilet facilities in schools and homeless shelters, renewing barrier-free street maps, and offering plumbing training to help conserve local water resources. The projects had a positive impact on the lives of over 16,000 people.

Local Community Engagement Holding Community Dialogues in Factories, Sales and Retail Bases

LIXIL Corporation regularly holds community dialogues with local stakeholders (such as local government officials, business owners, residents etc) on how we can contribute back to the community. These are held at factories, sales and retail bases around Japan. In FYE2018, LIXIL Corporation held community dialogues at 11 locations in Japan, attracting over 90 participants.
