Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR): What We Do & Why It Matters To Us

OMRON Corporation has one essential core value: “Working for the benefit of society.” Our founder, Kazuma Tateizi, believed that any great company must serve society as its primary objective to remain so, and today, we honor his philosophy through our practice of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

To us, CSR reaches beyond our contribution to economic development and our compliance with ethical standards to a place where we further social good even at the smallest levels. Recycling, partnering with nearby colleges, volunteering, supporting local business—these actions are testimonies to our devotion to making a positive difference in our local community and society at large.

Founder’s Day – How We Serve Society

Beginning in 1991, every May 10th, OMRON employees around the world have acknowledged and celebrated the anniversary of its establishment (a day known as "Founder's Day" within the company) by engaging in a wide variety of volunteer activities. Clean-up efforts, food bank assistance, visits to animal shelters and retirement homes, construction projects, and blood donation constitute a mere handful of the endeavors pursued in an effort to express our sincerest appreciation for the communities in which we do business. Employees perform these chosen activities during work hours, giving back on company time; it is proof of the importance that OMRON places on serving society.

Omron Foundation

Founded in 1989, the OMRON Foundation, Inc. (OFI) was established to coordinate the charitable efforts of all OMRON offices in the US to achieve the greatest positive social impact.
