Basic Principles on Social Contributions
Shimizu actively contributes to society and local communities as a corporate citizen. By doing so, we help preserve the abundance of the earth and create a future society in which all people on it can live with happiness. Our activities are rooted in The Analects and the Abacus (Ethics and Economics), which contains the basic principles for managing our business; our corporate slogan, Today’s Work, Tomorrow’s Heritage; and our views on corporate social responsibility (CSR) and corporate social values (CSV).
