Corporate Social Responsibility

Ebara is committed to contributing to society through cutting-edge products and services and responsible corporate citizenship.

EBARA Hatakeyama Memorial Fund

EBARA Hatakeyama Memorial Fund (EHMF) was established by EBARA in 1989 for the purpose of conducting international cooperation activities through technical guidance and deepening mutual understanding and friendly relations mainly with Southeast Asian countries.

Founded based on the philosophy of the late President Seiji Hatakeyama, "EBARA coexisting with local communities," it is a social contribution activity that does not pursue corporate profitability.

Activities are summarized as follows:

1 . Providing short-term technical courses (seminars, etc.) based on overseas universities, etc. through the experiences and technologies accumulated by EBARA.
2 . Providing R&D support that meets local needs.

Short-term Technical Courses

As of the end of December 2019, the EBARA Hatakeyama Memorial Fund (EHMF) has held 279 seminars, workshops, and training courses, large or small, in over 20 countries, with a total of 13,513 attendees.
These courses are conducted in cooperation with universities and public institutions in each region. EHMF dispatches experienced engineers to take charge of the courses, and contributes to the improvement of technical skills. The attendees are mainly university students and practical technicians from the government, public and private sectors. The courses also cover practical contents ranging from basic knowledge to planning, design, and maintenance of public facilities and industrial infrastructure.
We offer training courses in cooperation with Asian universities such as the Asian Institute of Technology (Bangkok, Thailand) and universities in South America, each of which serves as a unique place for international cooperation.

Research Support

Among universities in Southeast Asia, “school of engineering using fluid machinery” and “school of heat and refrigeration technologies” have grown in popularity. The number of universities with pump courses is increasing. Along with this, there is a shortage of teaching materials for practical training, and there is an increasing demand for teaching materials that will teach students how to measure the structure and performance of pumps.

Therefore, from 2015, we started a project to donate to universities teaching materials useful for learning about pumps. We have also donated water supply pump units and cut models of pumps to Institute of Technology of Cambodia, Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology in Vietnam, Thammasat University in Thailand, Yangon Technological University in Myanmar, and University of Indonesia.
