We participate in the Icho Hachimangu Shrine Festival held once every three years in Kakigaracho, Nihonbashi, where our head office is located. Last time, we helped with a booth in front of our building.
Engagement with Communities/Society Applicable SDGs
As a member of a communal society, the RACCOON Group strives to contribute to society and its development. We also actively participate in developing new technologies and markets.
Volunteer Support Program
This program supports the social contribution activities of the RACCOON Group’s members, like volunteering. If members have activities they would like to undertake, they can receive support if they share the details inside the company and recruit others to join. This support includes assistance with transportation and accommodation costs as well as up to five paid vacation days a year for volunteering on weekdays.
In this way, we support employee contributions to their communities and society by giving those with no volunteer experience the chance to try it and making it easy for those already active to take it further.
Entry into the Fintech Association of Japan
The B2B deferred payment service “Paid” developed by RACCOON HOLDINGS’ subsidiary RACCOON FINANCIAL joined the Fintech Association of Japan in December 2015. Paid is a payment service that takes over the invoicing work and non-payment risk of payment on credit, delivering stress-free transactions between companies. We wholeheartedly support the association’s mission of “accelerating the development of disruptive innovation for users” and joined so that Paid could be part of this catalyzation of the fintech market.
