Social Contribution Initiatives
Ongoing Disaster Support
The Lintec Group has been making relief donations as an ongoing activity to support recovery after the Great East Japan Earthquake. In fiscal 2016, as in the previous fiscal year, the company raised funds for Ofunato City in Iwate Prefecture, which has signed a cooperation agreement with Itabashi City, where Lintec's Head Office is located. Lintec and Lintec Forest* respectively matched the donations made by Lintec employees. The funds were used to purchase and install sports facilities and equipment on local elementary and junior high school grounds. Lintec's Head Office also hosted a Fukushima Foods & Product Fair to support the recovery of Fukushima by economic activities. The company will continue various forms of reconstruction support activities in the future.

Donation to Ofunato City
The Lintec Group has been raising funds from employees to donate to Ofunato City in Iwate Prefecture as part of support for recovery from the Great East Japan Earthquake. The donation was used, through the local education board, to improve local junior high school facilities, particularly school grounds, to help students to more fully engage in physical and athletic activities. We received a letter of thanks from many recipients, including Ofunato Junior High School's baseball team, who expressed their heartwarming appreciation for the developed standard school athletic grounds, which had been unavailable in the disaster-affected area. We will continue activities to support disaster victims with reconstruction efforts.
Students Became More Motivated
We had to hold our physical education classes and extracurricular activities at off-site locations because temporary housing was built on our school grounds following the Great East Japan Earthquake. Now we have a space for extracurricular activities, which was completed with support from Lintec, and students seem to be more motivated to take part in activities. Lintec has also supported the purchase of musical instruments for our brass band club, which expanded the scope of the club's activities. We hope students will let others know that they are living an active life thanks to the support of many people.
Lintec held its sixth Lintec Fureai Concert in October 2016 at the Itabashi Culture Hall, inviting persons with disabilities and their helpers living in Tokyo's Itabashi City, as well as people from neighboring areas. A total of about 650 people, including Lintec employees, enjoyed the event.
The concert programs included: hand bell performances and sign language dances by children with Down syndrome from Itabashi Hohoemi-no-kai, an association of parents of those with the condition; a chorus by Kuma, the Itabashi City Takashima Daisan Junior High School girls choir; and a jazz band session
We will continue this initiative to create opportunities to communicate with local residents.
Lintec Group companies are providing wide-ranging support. For instance, PT. Lintec Indonesia planted 1,500 mangrove trees to improve the local environment, while Madico, Inc. participated in an event for children who are unable to return home for compelling reasons.
Support for the Areas Affected by the Kumamoto Earthquake in 2016
We express our heartfelt sympathy to all those who were affected by the Kumamoto Earthquake. To be of help to the affected people and help the recovery of the affected areas, the Lintec Group made relief donations through the Japanese Red Cross Society. Employees of group companies in and outside Japan have also donated the funds they raised separately.
We hope for the earliest possible recovery of the affected areas.
