To develop sustainable local communities and a society that uses water effectively into the future, not only are the business activities of corporations important but the role of civic activities is also essential.
To that end, we established the TOTO Water Environment Fund to support the activities of organizations that are working to preserve the global environment and create sanitary and comfortable living environments. Through this fund and other measures, we are contributing to the resolution of issues in local communities as well as their sustainable development.
Cleaning and Tree-planting activities
We are conducting local cleaning activities at each business site to contribute to pleasant community development.
