Social Contribution Activities

AGC Group Social Contribution Basic Policy

Guided by the AGC Group Social Contribution Basic Policy, the AGC Group carries out activities for helping communities around the world. The Group will promote activities meant to contribute to the resolution of social issues in fast-growing countries in which business activities are being developed.

In countries and regions worldwide, the AGC Group is adopting systems to facilitate employee participation in social contribution activities. For instance, AGC Asahi Glass implemented a volunteer day-off program in 2012, while group companies in Thailand adopted an ACG Group Ambassador program that certifies employees engaged in community development activities in their area. More than 100 employees have been certified to date.
