"Community" Added to ACCJ Core Pillars Codifying ACCJ Commitment to Responsible Corporate Citizenship
The ACCJ Board of Governors approved the addition of a fourth pillar to the ACCJ's core activities at its meeting on December 6, 2019. Complementing the long-standing pillars of Networking, Information-sharing, and Advocacy, and in line with the principles enshrined in the ACCJ Constitution, a fourth pillar called "Community" was added to emphasize the ACCJ's commitment to promoting and demonstrating responsible corporate citizenship in Japan. The ACCJ mission was also amended to codify this commitment.
The ACCJ and its members demonstrate good corporate citizenship through their companies’ own considerable efforts as well as through the ACCJ's support of local charities, an effort administered by the Community Service Advisory Council, the ACCJ’s efforts in relation to corporate governance, and the ACCJ's work on diversity and inclusion. The ACCJ will launch new activities in 2020 to showcase the efforts of its member companies.
Going into 2020, we look forward to continuing to support the community in which we do business and working with all members to become exemplary corporate citizens.
