Our Promises to Society

Our Basic Policy

Tadano established the CSR Committee in 2005 to promote and promulgate CSR. The Tadano Group believes that a company can exist only when it is in harmony with the people around it. Therefore, we will contribute to the development of local and international societies, and promote business activities that help protect the global environment. We will also seek to maximize our corporate value in response to the expectations of all of our stakeholders. Under our corporate philosophy of Sozo (Creation), Hoshi (Contribution), and Kyoryoku (Cooperation), we want to serve our communities in ways only Tadano can.

Cultural Restoration and Academic Support

As a manufacturer of lifting equipment, Tadano has been uniquely positioned to make contributions to the community by assisting with cultural restoration projects. In response to a message from Easter Island (Chile) seeking technical assistance to return the Moai statues to the standing position, Tadano took on the Moai Restoration Project, which lasted from 1988 to 1996. In 2019, as part of our 100th anniversary project, we donated a third crane to Easter Island.
Tadano also provided technical cooperation in the disassembly of the Takamatsuzuka Tomb's stone chamber in Nara by developing a disassembly jig in 2007. This cooperation was highly evaluated, and in February 2018, Tadano won the Special Prize of the Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry in the Monozukuri Nippon Grand Award. In 2008, we donated three products to help in restoration work on West Prasat Top, part of the Angkor Thom ruins that were in a critical condition after destruction to masonry owing to long years of neglect, in part due to the civil war in Cambodia.
In order to support the maintenance and development of the Kwasan Observatory, Tadano established the General Incorporated Kwasan Cultural Foundation for the Promotion of Cosmology, which has been donating 10 million yen annually over 10 years since 2019. Through this support, Tadano will make social contributions to the field of astronomy.

Plant Tours for Families

Plant Tours for Families

Tadano holds plant tours each year to enhance children's interest and understanding in Monozukuri (high-quality manufacturing) and technology and to give them a little help with their summer projects by providing them with a rare opportunity to visit plants and test ride our cranes.
In FY 2018, the tour was held at our Shido Plant in July and was joined by a total of 42 families from both inside and outside the company.
In FY 2021, the tour of our Kozai Plant was held online due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A total of 14 families from not only Kagawa but also Osaka, Ehime, and other prefectures participated in the tour.

Forestation Activities

Under the Forest Matching Promotion Project organized by Kagawa Prefecture, we have designated a part of forest owned by Sanuki City as Tadano Forest of Learning and have been working on forest preservation. Volunteer group company employees take part in the forestation activities to create a platform to learn the importance of environmental conservation through forest maintenance, as well as to interact with others by participating in forest maintenance.
In 2020, we held a forestation event at Tadano Forest of Learning. A total of 43 participants worked on forest maintenance to reclaim the lawn, with an eye to planting trees in the future.

Forestation Activities

Beach Cleaning

Beach Cleaning

Many plants in Kagawa are located by the sea. To maintain the richness of the Seto Inland Sea, we launched a beach cleaning initiative. The cleaning is an attempt to raise interest in and learn about the amount and types of garbage found on the beach, as well as how the garbage got to the sea.
The first cleaning took place in October 2021. 44 participants, including volunteer employees, picked up garbage on the beach in Yashimanishi-machi, Takamatsu and deepened their understanding of and knowledge on marine conservation by filling in and reporting through the International Coastal Cleanup data sheet.

Heartful Pocket (Donor Organization)

This support organization, which encourages employees' participation, was launched in 2007 as a grassroots initiative for raising donations for organizations and individuals dedicated to a variety of social causes. Employees who become members of the organization make a donation of 100 yen from their monthly salary and 500 yen from their bonus. The company devotes the amount equivalent to the sum of the contributions by employees (matching gift), and make donations twice a year. As of March 2021, we have made donations to 61 organizations nominated by Tadano Group employees.

Contributing to the Local Community

Contributing to the Local Community

In FY 2021, Tadano renewed the top sponsor agreement with Kamatamare Sanuki, a football club that belongs to the Japan Professional Football League. The club's home town is Kagawa Prefecture. As part of our efforts to support local organizations and events for regional revitalization, we also donate to Setouchi Triennale, an international art festival held on the islands of the Seto Inland Sea, and the Takamatsu International Piano Competition, which features world-class music from Takamatsu.
Also, team members of the two German group companies, Tadano Faun GmbH and Tadano Demag GmbH, donated over 32,000 euros for the victims of the catastrophic flooding that occurred in western Germany last summer. The companies then matched this donation so that a total of 65,000 euros were collected for the victims.






Our Promises Among Partners

Our Basic Policy

Tadano's products are made of tens of thousands of parts, many of which are procured from our suppliers. To deliver even safer and higher-quality products to our customers, building strong relationships with our suppliers is essential. The Tadano Group CSR Charter and the Tadano Group Compliance Regulations set out principles for coexistence with business associates and fair procurement activities respectively. Tadano also promotes environmentally-friendly product development through the non-use of the four substances of concern with the understanding and cooperation of our suppliers.

Aiming for Mutual Development: the Tadano Kyoei Society

In April 1999, Tadano and its suppliers established the "Tadano Kyoei Society" with the aim of fostering an independent, solution-oriented organization with the competitive technologies and capabilities needed to survive in the 21st century. Since then up to the present time, we have developed and maintained lasting, strong relationships with our suppliers and worked with them for mutual growth and development. The organization is comprised of a total of 58 corporate members in Japan (as of June 2021). A variety of activities and events are held each year, including safety workshops, presentations on improvement initiatives, plant tours, and SVE conferences. The association also presents awards to suppliers with outstanding achievements each year.

Building a "Win-Win" Relationship: SVE Activities by the "Team of Four"

Since 2009, Tadano's three divisions (Research and Development, Production, Procurement) have worked with our suppliers as a "Team of Four" to promote its SVE activities, with the goal of developing and producing products with greater value. "SVE"— an original concept developed by Tadano by adding "S" (Super and Sustainable) to "VE" (Value Engineering)— embodies our determination to surpass our past VE activities and continue to move forward vigorously with our efforts.

SCOOP activities

We began our SCOOP (Super Cooperation) program, a key component of our SVE activities, in 2011. We work with our suppliers on an individual basis to set themes and targets to enhance the value and functionality of products and reduce costs while leveraging strengths and qualities of both Tadano and the suppliers.

Our Promises Among Employees

Our Basic Policy

Employee development is what drives a company to accomplish its long-term goals. Company growth cannot be achieved without the growth and development of employees. Based on the concept that employees are our assets, Tadano emphasizes workplace building and human resources development to best leverage the skills and individuality of each person, allowing employees to give their maximum performance. We believe that the synergy generated by ensuring a proper work-life balance on the foundation of the physical and mental well-being is fundamental to raising productivity and creating added value.

Tadano's Health Management Initiatives

We promote health management as we recognize that the physical and mental well-being of each and every employee is essential for maintaining a prosperous life and professional-level performance.

Tadano is certified as a Health & Productivity Management Organization

Since launching its Physical and Mental Wellness Program in 1981, Tadano has been working to foster a culture of health in the workplace. Initiatives include granting company employees and families access to the Fitness Center located within the company. Since 2018 Tadano has been recognized in the Large Enterprise Category of the Certified Health & Productivity Management Organization Recognition Program of Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry and the Nippon Kenko Kaigi (Japan Health Council). Our seven domestic group companies were also recognized in the Small and Medium-sized Enterprise Category of the Certified Health & Productivity Management Organization Recognition Program in March 2022.

Our Commitment to Safety in the Workplace

Tadano has significant obligations and responsibility for product safety, to protect both our customers and society. It is occupational safety at the company that supports the product safety. We believe that realizing occupational safety at the company is essential to ensuring the safety of our products.
Based on this concept, we prepared the Tadano Group Safety Fundamentals Card in December 2017 with the goal of further raising awareness about workplace safety among Tadano Group employees. Prepared in seven languages (Japanese, English, German, French, Dutch, Thai and Hindi), the card is distributed to all Group employees. We also regularly communicate with safety officers at plants both in Japan and overseas, to pursue further improvement in safety. One of the results of this program is that our two German group companies obtained the occupational health and risk management system (OHRIS) certificates in 2018.

Diversity and Inclusion

We accept diversity in terms of various factors, including abilities and experience. Harnessing it for use inside our organization will improve employee job satisfaction and productivity, helping to create added value. Driven by this belief, we are creating workplace environments where diverse employees can best utilize their talents.

Empowerment of women

Aiming to increase the percentage of female employees at the company to 10% by the end of FY 2026, Tadano hires women in a well-planned and proactive manner. At the same time, we are making steady progress in developing a work environment and a job rotation system to promote the advancement of women through initiatives such as providing more training opportunities for women to help them succeed as the next generation of leaders.

  • Introduction of a return employment system

    In May 2020, we introduced a system in Japan to rehire employees who previously left the company for reasons such as childbirth, raising children, nursing family members, or transfer of their spouse. The knowledge, experience and skills of these former employees can then once again be put to work in our company.

Work-style reform

Tadano supports diverse work-styles in the belief that the synergy generated by ensuring a proper work-life balance leads to better productivity and creates added value.

  • Introduction of telework (working from home, satellite offices)

    In September 2020, the company fully adopted teleworking and satellite office work, in combination with its already active mobile work system. Simultaneous to the introduction of these systems, we discontinued the core times of the flexi-time system for telework, to further enhance work flexibility.

  • Promoting male involvement in housework and childcare

    We are encouraging male employees at the company to take a greater part in housework and child-rearing through special features on male employees taking childcare leave in our internal newsletters, and encouraging and getting across various programs at training sessions for newly appointed managers and supervisors.

Human Resources Development

Based on our belief that a company is its people and the success of a company is built on human resources development, we always place emphasis on development of human resources. In particular, Tadano actively develops human resources capable of competing on the global stage as its business domain expands globally. For instance, we encourage young employees at the company to undertake overseas assignments.
