Honda Social Contribution Activities

Since the Company was founded, Honda has sought to contribute to society and customers by creating quality products and technologies while coexisting harmoniously with the communities that host its operations. In the 1960s, while the Company was still in a period of early growth, Honda began to launch philanthropic initiatives designed to strengthen ties with local communities.
 Currently, Honda undertakes various social activities in the six regions of the Company’s worldwide operations, aiming to share joy with people all around the world and to become a company society wants to exist. Honda also strives to support initiatives that reflect local circumstances in its corporate activities overseas.
