Komatsu's social contribution activities

Undertaking social contribution activities in the communities where we operate is one of our important corporate responsibilities. We recognize and position social contribution activities as activities that are in alignment with the Sustainability Policy and do not directly generate earnings. Leveraging our strengths as a business, we seek to give back to the community and society in general.

Nurturing the next generation and preserving our natural environment

With the aim of nurturing the children who will lead the next generation and preserving our natural environment, Komatsu pursues a variety of initiatives and programs including: guided nature observation tours of the Satoyama parkland, science and manufacturing classes, and social studies field trips for elementary schools.

Regional human resource development

“Developing people”. Komatsu puts this social contribution activity at the top of our list. Working closely with national and local government, schools and other organizations, we tailor human resource development programs to meet the unique needs and circumstances of each region with the aim of empowering participants with skills that will open the door to employment opportunities. From a prison rehabilitation program in Chile to our involvement in STEM education for young career development in the UK, all these programs share our vision of building a brighter future for all.

Our construction machinery and other products are often called on to play an indispensable role in recovery and reconstruction operations in the wake of natural disasters.

Afforestation activities

Working to balance resource development and environmental conservation is another important responsibility. Through land restoration and afforestation, Komatsu contributes to the restoration of formerly mined lands to forests and farmland, and expansion of green space for natural habitat. From a reforestation project at an abandoned mine site in North America to China and Indonesia where our employees volunteer in tree planting projects, this is a global initiative. Learn more
