The Sysmex Group is engaged in concerted social contribution activities, guided by its unified global theme, "Aim for a healthier society", which is based on its Policy on Corporate Citizenship Activities and Philanthropy.
Between June and September, we staged the "Sysmex Gives Back Challenge", a program consistent throughout the Group. This year, we turned our eye to those affected by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, in addition to blood donations and environmental activities to coincide with World Blood Donor Day and World Environment Day. Besides donating blood and cleaning the neighborhood in various regions and countries, we did what little we could do to give back to society in different ways, including donating food and surgical masks to medical professionals, producing and donating hand sanitizers, and supporting host communities. Some 1,000 associates took part in these activities across the world.
The Sysmex Group will remain committed to working together to promote social contribution activities.
