We recognize that our responsibility to society doesn’t just include our business pursuits. That is why we support a variety of artistic, athletic, and scientific endeavors.
Science & Technology
Science is at the center of everything we do. To support the advancement of science, we sponsor a variety of initiatives in support of research, technology, and society.
The NAGASE Science and Technology Foundation
In 1989, we established a foundation to advance science and technology in Japan. By supporting research and development in the fields of organic chemistry and biochemistry, we’re working to improve socioeconomic progress.
The International Chemistry Olympiad
In 2021, we sponsored the 53rd installment of the Olympiad in Japan. The Olympiad is an annual academic competition for high school students and we were proud to support them as they enthusiastically develop the chemistry and materials leaders of the future.
The Hayashibara Prize
Since 1963, we have awarded 109 people who are working at the forefront of cancer treatment. We established the Hayashibara Prize to honor them, and to help actively contribute to the eradication of cancer and promote cancer research.
Nurturing Local Culture
We believe in the power of the arts to nurture culture and improve society, and we support organizations and events that bring this to the forefront.
Hayashibara Museum of Art
We operate the Hayashibara Museum of Art, where we preserve works of art and stage public exhibitions to share and celebrate the culture of the region.
Our head office in Osaka is a registered cityscape resource of Osaka City. Every year, we participate in the Living Architecture Museum Festival, which celebrates Osaka’s buildings and attracts visitors from around the world.
Based on our management philosophy of “Contributing to create a sustainable world where people live with peace of mind,” we support charitable organizations that are improving society as a whole.

We sponsor a number of athletic teams and organizations that help stimulate our communities and promote a healthy, active lifestyle.
