Activity ReportEnvironmental Protection and Social Contribution Activities
Our environmental protection activities are focused on the mitigation of global warming, an issue with profound implications for the insurance business.

We also engage in social contribution activities to support the realization and continuation of “peace of mind” and development of communities and society in Japan and around the world as a good corporate citizen.

Hereafter, we continue to improve such activities to contribute to lower environmental burden for preservation our environment. Toa Re also facilitates employees to understand and to get interested in social contribution activities.

ECONOSAURUS 2018 Eco-Calendar

To raise the environmental awareness of as many people as possible, we distribute the Eco-Calendar to children at public elementary schools in Chiyoda-ku, where Toa Re’s head office is located, as well as to our clients.

The ECONOSAURUS Eco-Calendar is a fun way to learn about the environmental impact of activities of our daily lives. By keeping a record on the Eco-Calendar of the amounts of electricity, gas and water consumed, one can calculate the corresponding amounts of emissions of carbon dioxide, a substance said to lead to global warming. The Eco-Calendar shows the environmental friendliness of one’s household based on selfassessment and encourages one to do better.


Lectures on Environmental Issues

To contribute to protection of the global environment, Toa Re and the Non-Life Insurance Institute of Japan have been jointly holding a series of lectures on environmental issues.

In fiscal 2017, Professor Taikan Oki of the Institute of Industrial Science at The University of Tokyo, who is a world authority on the issue of water resources, gave a lecture titled “Thoughts on water risks.”

Book Donations

Wishing to inspire children to take an informed interest in environmental issues, Toa Re donates books on environmental themes to the eight public elementary schools in Chiyoda-ku every year on Earth Day (April 22).

Participation in TABLE FOR TWO

We participate in TABLE FOR TWO (TFT), a program simultaneously addressing issues concerning hunger in developing countries and obesity and lifestyle-related diseases in developed countries.

If TFT lunches are purchased at our cafeteria, by setting aside a certain amount as donation, a portion of the total amount will be used to provide school lunches for children in developing countries.

Vending machines at Toa Re Head Office support a TFT donation program. A portion of sales from these vending machines is donated to TFT.
