Natural disasters such as floods, hurricanes, fires or earthquakes have a truly devastating effect on a community. That’s why we support several initiatives that offer help to these communities after a natural disaster occurs.
In 2019, SMC made a donation to the “Kamaishi City Rugby Children’s Future Fund” and the “Kamaishi City Sports Promotion Fund” as part of cooperation for supporting recovery from the earthquake disaster (SMC Tono Factory Japan).
In 2020 and 2021, in response to requests from the governments and companies of various countries, SMC has been supplying products for respirators and mask manufacturing equipment to help combat COVID-19.
SMC participates in green conservation activities organised by the Saitama Greenery Trust Association. SMC employees in Japan take part in weeding, pruning and cleaning activities such as the raking of leaves, and other activities to preserve the local greenery.
