Key Performance Indicators
Full-scale launch of the Miraca Group’s philanthropic activities
Pursue Miraca identity, aim for 1,000 participants a year
The Miraca Group aims to become a corporate group with forward-looking and distinctive CSR activities in Japan by 2020. In fiscal 2018, we have united as a Group to promote philanthropic activities that previously led by each company and division.
Annual Number of Participants
The number of participants is used as an indicator to measure corporate commitment to volunteer activities, and is required for disclosure by external standards.
With fiscal 2018 as the trial phase and fiscal 2019 as the refinement phase, this period was set as the two years to jump-start philanthropy, with plans to expand the annual number of participants to 700 and 1,000 for fiscal 2018 and 2019, respectively.
Estimated number of participants at around 250 to 300
FY2018 result (as of Dec. 31, 2018)
|Type of activity||Number of participants|
|Activities addressing care-related issues in collaboration with NPOs, patients associations and other organizations||412|
|Philanthropic activities by each division, such as open symposiums and cleanup||459|
|Community projects such as festivals||472|
In the past, the Group had invested extensively on academic-related donations and the Miraca Group Summer Festival at Hachioji Office, but did not actively contribute to NPOs and patients associations.
In the future, we plan to expand donations and support programs for NPOs and patients associations in keeping with our Policy on Philanthropy.

Distilling the Miraca Identity
During the fiscal 2018 trial phase, we collected many ideas and candidate organization for collaboration from Group employees based on ideas solicited from company portals and Group CSR awareness surveys. From fiscal 2019, we will implement refinements and distill our unique activities.
