Chugoku Electric has as one of its business principles to "Contribute to the development of the region" and engages in many different social contribution activities, including those for educational support, social welfare and environmental preservation, which are rooted in the region and involve the participation of employees.
We engage in educational support activities so as to raise interest in and concern for environmental and energy problems among children, who will form the next generation. These activities are dubbed the Wakuwaku E-School and comprise classes in the environment and energy held at various venues, as well as classes given at schools and study tours of our facilities.
To help with supporting independence in the elderly and enhancing social well-being, we visit the homes of elderly people living alone, and social welfare facilities, carrying out electric equipment inspection, interaction with the people, and other activities that bring into play the characteristic traits of the electric power business.
As efforts to help preserve the region’s environment, we engage in environmental preservation activities such as clean-ups of roads, parks and seashores, and maintenance of forest.
In line with the government’s Environment Month, we have designated June of every year as EnerGia Group Environment Month, during which we participate in locally organized environmental events and deploy events of various kinds-greenery planting, clean-up activities, and more.
We engage in regional development activities through research and surveys concerning industry and economy and publication of PR pamphlets aimed at supporting regional vitalization, besides also participating in local festivals, mounting displays at region-promoting events and getting involved in other region-promoting activities in collaboration with NPOs and volunteer organizations, etc.
We engage in promotion and support for local art, culture and sports through the holding of concerts, culture lectures, sports tournaments and so forth.
Through exchange arrangements with electric power companies abroad, we send our specialists and receive trainees regularly.
