The Daio Paper Group seeks to create an environment for children around the world to play their favorite sports and support people who are striving to realize their dreams by sponsoring tournaments for women’s professional golf, girls’ baseball, and other sports. In addition, to help revitalize local communities, Daio Paper participates in various support projects organized by local governments and conducts charity activities. We aim to strengthen bonds with local communities and contribute to their prosperous development.

Social Contribution through Sports

Daio Paper Elleair Ladies Open

The Daio Paper Elleair Ladies Open, the final event of the Japan JLPGA tour each year, draws a great deal of attention because it is a critical tournament for players competing to top the money list or make it onto the priority ranking list for the next year’s tour. The tournament is administered by Daio Paper employees together with local volunteers, who handle live scoring and serve as course marshals, reception clerks, and in other positions. Through its sponsorship of this women’s professional golf tournament, Daio Paper declares its support for all women and works toward contributing to the local community.

Because the event is the last tournament on the Japan LPGA tour, our employees work together as one team toward its success, though they sometimes feel the pressure themselves in the midst of the intense competition between the golfers. Moreover, since first organizing the tournament, we have donated proceeds from charity activities held at the event to the local community in order to contribute to education and welfare in the host prefecture.

Daio Paper sponsors the Girls’ Soft Baseball Tournament to contribute to local communities through sports and show our support for girls who dream big and shine bright.

Together with our Hometown

As part of its initiatives to exist in harmony with the local community, the Daio Paper Group co-sponsors professional sports teams in its hometown of Ehime Prefecture: the football teams Ehime FC, which competes in the second division of the Japan Professional Football League, and Ehime FC Ladies, and the baseball team Ehime Mandarin Pirates. Together with Ehime Prefecture, local companies and residents, we will continue to support regional promotion projects that utilize professional sports.

Communication with Customers

Activities of DAIO Partner Ship Sakura Terrace Distributors’ Partnership


Plenary Meeting of Sakura Terrace

DAIO Partner Ship Sakura Terrace was established in November 2015.

DAIO Partner Ship Sakura Terrace, our regional distributors’ partnership, was established in November 2015 to facilitate collaboration with our distributors in the face of declining demand. We seek to “grow together, thrive together, and open up a new era together.” Through Sakura Terrace, we have been implementing market-oriented initiatives in collaboration with member distributors, such as seminars by job position level, ranging from new employees to senior executives, and information-sharing through the internet.

Exchange-of-Opinion Meetings with Local Residents and Tours of Production Facilities

At Daio Paper’s Mishima Mill, we create opportunities to exchange opinions with local residents once or twice a year. At this event, we explain our environmental protection activities (status of improving facilities, noise and vibration measurement data, etc.) and give a tour of the production facilities.

Activities with Local Residents

Clean Day (Shikokuchuo City)

Shikokuchuo City designates the first Sunday of July as Clean Day. It organizes clean-up activities with citizen volunteers to beautify the streets near the shores.

Clean Day in Shikokuchuo City

Daio Paper has been participating in this event every year since 1991. Approximately 500 employees from the Mishima Mill (Shikoku Headquarters) and affiliated companies work together to clean up the garbage accumulated in tetrapots along the quay of Mishima Port, which cannot normally be cleaned, in order to maintain the beauty of the harbor.

Environment Festa Pre-Event Kani River Clean-Up (Kani City)

Every year in February, Kani City’s Environment Division, local environmental organizations, and business operators come together to organize the Kani River Clean-Up as a pre-event to the Kani City Environment Festa.

Big Clean-Up of Kani River (Kani City)

Approximately 2,000 residents of Kani City, including around 170 employees of Kani Mill and affiliated companies, participate in clean-up activities around Kani River.

Co-sponsoring Child-Rearing Support Projects with Ehime Prefecture and Shikokuchuo City

Since 2011, the Daio Paper Group has been a sponsor of the Child-Rearing Support Project in the City of Paper, organized by Shikokuchuo City, in which vouchers for a one year’s supply of disposable baby diapers are distributed to households with babies under one year old. In 2015, we began sponsoring the Smiling Child-Rearing Support Project, organized by Ehime Prefecture to mitigate the declining birthrate, in which vouchers for disposable baby diapers are distributed to families raising a second or subsequent child. We will continue to proactively contribute to initiatives addressing the falling birthrate.
