ITOCHU: Committed to the Global Good
Over 150 years ago, our founder asserted that business dealings must benefit not only the buyer and seller but also wider society. Giving back to the communities in which we operate is one of the ways we uphold this principle. At our New York headquarters, for example, we organize volunteer teams twice a year to join New York Cares programs to revitalize the city’s parks and public schools, and we offer matching gifts to encourage employees to support charities of their choice. Our parent company is partnering with World Wildlife Fund to help protect biodiversity in Borneo, and has established a scholarship fund for foreign students studying at Japanese universities.
We are committed to being a green company and are very pleased that our offices were awarded LEED (Silver) Green Building Certification.
