With our Corporate Philosophy of making extensive contributions to society in the fields of water, air, and the environment, the EBARA Group has supported the growth of various countries around the world and the solution of social issues.
We will apply the “spirit, knowledge, and technology” that we have developed through our business activities over more than 100 years, as we make dedicated efforts toward social contribution activities to support the creation of a sustainable society in accordance with E-vision 2030, the long-term vision of the EBARA Group.
1.Contribute to the growth of regional communities around the world
We will communicate with regional communities involved in business activities, and will strive to conduct social contribution activities even outside of business. For example, we will support activities such as training for technical personnel, to convey the knowledge and technical expertise of the EBARA Group to our Group companies in order to solve social issues in emerging countries.
2.Provide educational support to the leaders of the next generation
Our employees engage in educational support activities in the specialty fields of the EBARA Group, aimed toward the leaders of the next generation who will be essential in developing a sustainable society. These include support provided by employees toward research conducted by elementary school, junior high school, and high school students. We will also contribute on a global scale to activities for the cultivation of human resources.
3.Carry out activities to support art, culture, and sports
Through activities to support areas outside of our business domains such as art, culture, and sports, we will contribute to the creation of a society that has deep consideration not only for material abundance but also for richness of the mind and spirit. Also, while engaging in these activities we will communicate closely with regional communities and build strong, positive relationships.
1.EBARA Hatakeyama Memorial Fund Technology Seminar
In response to strong requests by developing regions, EHMF has organized small and large seminars, workshops, and training courses on flood control, drainage, water supply development, irrigation, and other topics related to pump technology and infrastructure development. Additionally, in recent years, there has been an increase in the demand for refrigeration technology seminars.
EBARA has started an initiative to donate business and engineering knowledge, as well as pump models, to universities in the developing world in response to the need for these regions to have access to the latest technology. These donations are seen as crucial to these areas as they do not have the necessary funding or experience to develop their own research and education programs.

2.Donating school meals to children in Africa and Asia
Starting from May 2015, an activity of "contributing to society by means of company meals" has been carried out at the employee cafeterias of the headquarter, Futtsu Plant, Fujisawa Plant, and Sodegaura Plant. We participate in the NPO TABLE FOR TWO International / TABLE FOR TWO program*1 as a contribution to society that employees can participate easily, working on donation and matching donation*2 while eating a healthy lunch.
Supporting school meals helps to improve the enrollment rate of children and leads to the development of human resources for the future.
TABLE FOR TWO program: an activity aiming to simultaneously solve two problems of developed countries suffering from metabolism and developing countries suffering from food shortage. For every healthy lunch purchased, 20 yen will be donated for a meal for children of developing countries.
For each donation dish (20 yen) set up in the employee cafeterias, the company will donate 10 yen and the employee will donate 10 yen.
