3. Community Contribution Activities

In an effort to become a company that is closely related to the local community, we are working to contribute to the local community, such as supporting volunteer activities in each region. Employees visit social welfare facilities near offices throughout Japan and continuously interact through seasonal events and events. In addition, employees actively participate in local festivals with the aim of contributing to the sustainable development of local communities.
AEON Credit Service opened the farm “Peace Farm” in June 2018 and provided a new workplace for people with various disabilities. At this farm, we are actively engaged in social contribution activities, such as considering sending harvests to neighboring facilities.

4. Donations and Fundraising

We continue to engage in numerous fundraising activities in collaboration with customers, with funds raised through the charity program “24 Hour Television: Love Saves the Earth”. In addition, we post “Tokimeki Points” and fund-raising accounts accumulated by using credit cards on our website, etc., and hold fundraisers together with our customers. At Tokimeki Point, we make it possible to choose donations to environmental conservation and social welfare organizations at the customer's will, and we present the good will of many customers to each organization.
In addition, we are continuously supporting scholarships for students from Asia studying in Japan and students studying in Asian countries, mainly listed companies in Hong Kong, Thailand, and Malaysia.
