Corporate Philanthropy

Promotion of Social Contribution Activities

Policy

Anritsu contributes to society through its business operations while at the same time pursuing activities that benefit the development of the local community as a corporate citizen.

Community-based social contribution programs are at the center of these initiatives under the three pillars of “partnerships for educating youth”, “contributing to local communities” and “protecting the environment (biodiversity conservation)”, we carry out activities that our employees can participate in continuously.

Partnerships for Educating Youth

“Let’s Make a Radio Together” program for children at Atsugi city and Koriyama city

As part of the Kanagawa Science Summer events sponsored by Kanagawa Prefecture, Anritsu held a “Let’s Make a Radio Together” program at its headquarters for elementary school children in grades four to six and their parents. The program involved using a radio kit and solder to build an AM radio. By carefully assembling the parts, all the participants were able to complete a working radio. The program has grown in popularity every year, and this year 18 child-parent pairs were selected to take part during summer vacation.

In Tohoku Anritsu Co., Ltd. held the same event sponsored by in Koriyama city, Fukushima pref. There were 11 child-parent who lived in the north side of Koriyama city and enjoyed the same program.

Anritsu Santa Bag

We set up the Anritsu Santa Bag during the Christmas season in 2017 as we had done asking people to donate socks as part of the activities to commemorate as the Anritsu’s 120th anniversary since 2015. The initiative was launched after we learned from Atsugi City about the lack of new socks at child consultation centers. We were able to deliver 272 pairs of socks in 2017.

Protecting the Environment (Biodiversity Conservation)

Mt. Fuji Green Fund Afforestation Campaign

Since 2006, Anritsu has been participating in the Mt. Fuji Green Fund afforestation activities at the invitation of Ricoh Leasing Co., Ltd. In fiscal 2016, we pruned the branches of tall trees and cut vines to allow sunshine to reach the forest floor and to improve air movement, so that planted trees can grow. Children younger than elementary school age participated in a classroom in the woods to learn about the importance of trees while strolling through the area.

The activity is part of a grand, 80-year-long effort launched in 2000 for regenerating forests destroyed by a typhoon in 1996.
