■Sustainable Development Goals for Donations and Contribution

We aim to assist vulnerable groups through donations and aim to prevent and reduce the amount of waste generated by the Company.

Donations Through AUTOBACS Products

From July 2017 to March 2019, through NGO Plan International Japan, a portion of the sales from our private brand product, AQ. Disposable Cotton Cloth, went towards improving the living conditions of children in Bangladesh – the country where the product is manufactured. The AQ. Disposable Cotton Cloth is an environmentally friendly product that combines the recycled T-shirts that had been originally thrown away.

Donations of Reflectors Made of Used Car Air Fresheners

We donate reflectors made of used car air fresheners that are recycled by customers at our store locations. These reflectors are given to children and elderly people in various regions. This activity is being carried out in collaboration with P&G and TerraCycle Japan.

Donations of Emergency Food

We collect food and drinks for employee as a way to anticipate any large-scale disasters. Food is also prepared for the NPO Corporation Second Harvest Japan which provides food in emergency situations.
The donated food and beverages are delivered to those who need it most. This includes children in welfare facilities around the country, people who are forced to live on the streets, and families stricken by poverty.
We also stock canned bread as our emergency food and participate in the Kyu-Can-Cho Project. This project helps to collect goods before their expiration date and use this food as a contribution. The recovered canned bread is delivered to people suffering from world hunger.
We will continue these initiatives within our organization so that we may support other organizations, solve food disposal problems and fight against environmental problems.

Donation-style Vending Machines with Support from the Japanese Red Cross Society

In order for our company to be a space where employees can think about their social contributions and participate in initiatives within the company, we have introduced donation-type vending machines. They can be found whether at the headquarters (in Koto-ku, Tokyo) or at our offices in Osaka (Kita-ku, Osaka), Fukuoka (Hakata City, Fukuoka Prefecture) or at A PIT AUTOBACS SHINONOME.
