As a corporation and a member of local communities, we aim to be of more assistance to the communities of our customers. Duskin's various initiatives contribute to our local communities in line with our philosophy of Sowing the Seeds of Joy.
In recognition of Duskin's efforts in supporting children's education, the company received a 2019 Award of Excellence, sponsored by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, for its endeavors as an enterprise that promotes experience-based learning activities.
In 2012, we started the Sow the Seeds of Cleanliness Classrooms, which are on-site lessons for elementary school students. In these lessons, we help children develop their potential to learn the importance of cleaning and how to use cleaning equipment through hands-on training.
Duskin conducts seminars for schoolteachers who have asked for ways to improve their students' abilities during cleaning times at school. Collaborating with the teachers, we have developed programs showing how cleaning routines at school can be improved and how to instruct children on cleaning.
Under its environmental slogan Sowing the Seeds of Ecological Responsibility for the Future, Duskin conducts a nationwide activity to pick up trash at local sites. Initiated in 2006, the campaign has attracted a total of 330,000 participants (as of March 31, 2020) and continues to collect trash.
Our Prevention of Special Fraud Mats assist in protecting people from special types of fraud, which are a recurring nationwide problem. In cooperation with prefectural police, we enlighten and raise the public's awareness by proposing that our Prevention of Special Fraud Mats be placed at financial institutions. A total of more than 10,000 custom-made mats have been placed in front of automated teller machines at financial institutions and convenience stores in 45 of the prefectures and administrative divisions in Japan.
