LIXIL committing US$1m to support accelerated rollout to fight COVID-19
TOKYO, June 23, 2020 /3BL Media/ - Washing your hands thoroughly with soap reduces the spread of disease and can help prevent COVID-19 infection. But for approximately 3 billion people around the world, this step is out of reach. According to UNICEF, 40% of the world’s population does not have access to basic handwashing facilities at home. In the world’s least developed economies, it is as high as 75% of the population. The COVID-19 situation is highlighting vast inequities in access to water, sanitation, and hygiene.
We are proud to support those battling on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic by re-purposing our 3D printers in N.J. to make vital face shields that help keep healthcare workers safe. We thank our employees who have volunteered their time to the development and distribution of the shields.
PISCATAWAY, N.J., November 19, 2019 /3BL Media/ ― “Where is the toilet?” Every November 19th on World Toilet Day, LIXIL’s employees think about this question in a different way.
Many of us in developed countries often expect a simple answer. But the reality is that for 2 billion people, there is no straightforward response to this simple question. They do not have access to basic sanitation.
On World Toilet Day, LIXIL now aims to drive even further awareness of this critical issue through its own social media awareness campaign: #whereisthetoilet.
Community outreach took center stage this October, with LIXIL employees nationwide going out into the communities in which we work and live to give back through local park cleanups to fighting hunger and beyond. LIXIL Community Day, which began in 2017, sees executives and employees from all workplaces and regions around the world take part in social contribution activities during working hours.
LIXIL, a maker of pioneering water and housing products, had joined force with Tokyo Organizing Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games to be the first Presenting Partner for the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Torch Relay.
As a Tokyo 2020 Gold Partner, with the slogan ‘Change the future through OMOIYARI & OMOTENASHI,’ LIXIL has been orchestrating activities to make better living a reality for everyone, such as the ‘Universal Run’ program for children to experience what it’s like to use a prosthetic leg for sports.
