Disaster Relief

Daiichi Sankyo Group offers a range of support to areas around the world affected by natural disasters.

Reconstruction Support Following the Great East Japan Earthquake

The Daiichi Sankyo Group endorses the ideals of the Coastal Forest Restoration Project, a long-term post-Great East Japan Earthquake reconstruction support program held by OISCA in Natori City, Miyagi Prefecture. They have been supporting this initiative since 2012. Since fiscal 2013, employee volunteers have been participating in tree-raising activities. This project was commenced in 2011 with the aim of restoring the coastal forests that were lost to the tsunami which followed the earthquake. Initiatives for accomplishing this goal include raising 500,000 seedlings of a variety of trees, including Japanese black pine (Pinusthunbergii), as well as planting and caring for them and conducting other afforestation activities over an area of approximately 100 hectares by the time of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
In September 2017, 24 employee volunteers of the Daiichi Sankyo Group participated in tree-raising activities. “Participating in the reconstruction activity in a long span was truly meaningful” and “I want to continue supporting these efforts in the future,” volunteers who participated in this project remarked.
To encourage the continued healthy growth of the Japanese black pine, a steady stream of long-term work which requires many helping hands will be necessary. This includes weed removal, unit acreage sampling, and fertilizer application. The Daiichi Sankyo Group will continue to provide financial support while also responding to request for long-term support with employee volunteers.
