With our company philosophy of “PRIMO (the best) dreams for PRIMO (supreme) happiness” at its foundation, and from our desire to help people make their dreams come true and make happiness a reality for everyone, one person at a time, we at Primo Japan launched the PRIMO RING PROJECT, our company-wide CSR initiative, in 2007, and the project has carried out various activities every year since. As part of our activities for the community and the environment, we not only sponsor work experience programs and run job practice programs to foster in young people not only an understanding of what is involved in work and to develop a good work ethic, but we have also developed an original program that communicates the appeal of “marriage,” “proposals” and “bridal jewelry”. In this latest initiative, we decided to donate to the NPO Class for Everyone, in support of their mission “to create good educational environments for children”, as an effective way to put our old equipment to use.
