Minister of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism’s Doro Fureai Gekkan Commendation
In August 2017, Ueda Japan Radio Co., Ltd. received a commendation from the Minister of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism for its beautification and cleaning project, Doro Fureai Gekkan.
About 20 times per year since 2001, roughly 300 employees have done various work on National Route 141, which runs by the company’s head office. These activities are done before work hours and include cleaning the road’s surface, weeding, trimming roadside trees, and removing snow when it accumulates. The company received the minister’s commendation for these activities, which have maintained the scenery surrounding the road for many years, and was the only group in Nagano Prefecture to have this honor in fiscal 2017.
The company ranks regional environmental conservation as one of its critical corporate activities and will continue related activities in the future.
