IHI believes that company offices and facilities have the responsibility as community members to communicate with local residents to solve local issues together. IHI is committed to nurturing close relationships with all of its host communities.

Meeting society’s expectations: IHI aims to meet society’s expectations not only through its business, but also through five categories of activities focused on society.

Five key themes

IHI’s CSR activities in FY2016 included organizing a lecture on jet engines for around 370 elementary and junior high school students. This lecture featured a video about the history and structure of jet engines, which IHI created in a joint project with Ochanomizu University, and a demonstration of a propeller car. The lecture helped the students understand how interesting science can be and how their studies at school can contribute to society. Feedback included "I learnt a lot about jet engines" and "It made me interested in science."
As a monozukuri (precision manufacturing) company, IHI will continue helping to nurture future engineers.

Aioi Pe-ron Festival

Aioi Pe-ron Festival

The Pe-ron Festival’s history traces back to IHI’s roots as a shipbuilder, when it used to hold aquatic sports events. Although the festival is now organized by Aioi city, it is still conducted in front of an IHI waterfront factory. The event attracts tens of thousands of visitors each year and IHI sponsors some of the boats that participate in the race.

Soma Wild Horse Chase (Soma Nomaoi)

Soma Wild Horse Chase (Soma Nomaoi)

The Soma Nomaoi, an annual festival going back more than 1,000 years, is famous for its staged fight among warriors on horseback. In a parade associated with the festival, young IHI employees shoulder a portable shrine from Soma Nakamura Shrine and the head of the local IHI office rides a horse.
