Kureha is actively engaged in efforts to preserve the natural environment surrounding our operations through collaborations that promote interaction with our local communities.

Initiatives at the Iwaki Factory

As a part of community interaction, labor and management at the Iwaki Factory take part in a citizens' city cleanup campaign held by Iwaki City every spring and autumn.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the city's spring campaign was canceled in fiscal 2022, but the autumn campaign was held for the first time in three years. We engaged in cleanup volunteer activities as a part of the Responsible Care (RC) activities that we undertake across the Group in spring, and in step with activities conducted by Iwaki City in fall. A total of 1,309 people took part, working to beautify the environment.
