Local Communities

The Pioneer Group seeks to engage with local communities as a responsible corporate citizen.
Group companies and business sites hold briefing sessions on the environment with local residents and events for students of local schools to learn outside of the classroom.
We also cooperate with community events, sales of bread and other products hand made at vocational facilities for people with disabilities to our employees, and participate in other local activities.
