Our core business is to help people lead safe and rich lives in Japan and beyond. We are proud that our services, in and of themselves, contribute directly to significant social development.

Many projects in which we have engaged have produced benefits in the form of local security and development. The photos below depict an example from the Maldives in the Indian Ocean. To address the threat of sea level rise, we constructed seawalls as part of an official development assistance project. When the Indian Ocean Tsunami occurred in December 2004, these seawalls shielded the islands from the deadly waves. As a result, there was no deaths in the Maldives. The local residents were very grateful, saying that Japan had defended their islands.
