Social Contribution Initiatives

We are pleased to report about Isuzu's FY2018 activities below.

1. FY2018 TABLE FOR TWO (TFT) Program Results

Isuzu operates a TABLE FOR TWO ("TFT") program in its employee cafeteria and café to enable our employees to live and eat healthily, while at the same time contributing to society. Each time an employee orders something from the Healthy Menu or buys a Healthy Drink, 10 JPY is collected from the employee which Isuzu matches with another 10 JPY, making a total of 20 JPY. Combined with collections from donation boxes, this money is used to provide school meals for children suffering from famine and poverty in developing countries, through the NPO TABLE FOR TWO International.
