Since the company's foundation, Honda has sought to contribute to society by creating quality products and technologies while coexisting harmoniously with the communities that host its operations. In the 1960s, while the company was still in a period of early growth, Honda began to launch philanthropic initiatives designed to strengthen ties with local communities.
Honda actively encourages the autonomy of its local operations. We also strive to undertake initiatives that reflect local circumstances in our corporate activities overseas. We seek to share joy while communicating with customers and local residents in a total of six regions, including Japan.
We at Honda will continue to act as a company society wants to exist by pursuing various philanthropic initiatives.
Our fundamental approach
