Initiatives to fulfill our corporate social responsibility
Work experience for children
AEON delight hosts “work experience event” for children in collaboration with specialty stores in AEON Mall in Japan and China.
By inviting children to experience various tasks that our corporation routinely conduct, we are providing opportunities for them to learn the importance and interestingness of various tasks to operate facilities.
Emergency training for employees
We support the planning and implementation of comprehensive emergency training at client facilities, including evacuation drills, evacuation guidance drills, fire extinguisher training using fire extinguishers and installation of balloon shelters. We work closely with police stations and administrative offices, including the fire department, to secure our function as a disaster prevention base in cities and to improve the safety of facilities.
Planning a safe and secure city through vending machines
Utilizing the revenue of vending machines, we have concluded with Higashi-Kurume City, Tokyo, an “agreement on the installation of security cameras and vending machines” to install security cameras in the streets used by elementary school students to go to school.
AED experience meeting
As a corporation that provides an environment with “safety, a sense of security, and comfort” to people using our facilities, Aeon’s shopping center offers “emergency training/first aid course” such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation method using a training doll and AED operation. We have had a lot of participants in these courses.
Outsourcing shopping basket cleaning to vocational facility
The shopping baskets used at our stores are delivered to the “washing center” within the 6 vocational aid centers we have nationwide, and cleaning and antibacterial coating are done with washing devices.
Our response to the Great East Japan Earthquake and the 2016 Kumamoto Earthquake
At the Great East Japan Earthquake that occurred on March 11, 2011, Aeon Group stores also suffered great damage. AEON delight organized a support system of 300 people in total and worked on various tasks such as restoration of store facilities, transporting aid supplies, providing generators, light projectors and temporary toilets, and dispatching security guards.
Likewise, at the Kumamoto Earthquake that occurred on April 14, 2016, a countermeasure headquarter was established after the earthquake to confirm the damage situation. Within 3 days after the earthquake, we sent cumulative 216 employees from headquarters/regional offices/affiliated companies. We installed a temporary toilet and a large tent for emergency evacuation called “balloon shelter” which can accommodate 200 people, and promptly dispatched personnel and worked on supplying equipment and materials.
