The Daigas Group aims to promote sustainable regional communities through communication with society under five themes—working with regional communities; history, culture and towns; sports and health; safety and security; and diet.
Through business activities rooted in communities, the Daigas Group grasps changes and issues in the environment surrounding the communities and builds good relations with various stakeholders. While striving for active information disclosure to gain understanding of our business, we are engaged in activities to create value in communities (regional co-creation) as a member of the communities and society mainly in five fields: working with regional communities; history, culture and towns; sports and health; safety and security; and diet. An example of the activities is the Small Light Campaign led by our employees. By actively working on these activities that use the resources our Group has, we will contribute to the development of sustainable regional communities where people can live a comfortable and spiritually rich life.
