Yamaha Motor concluded a partnership agreement with the United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme, the first partnership in Japan between a private-sector company and the UNV. Based on this agreement and working through the UNV, one employee is dispatched to the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in India for one year, from August 2016 to July 2017, to support BoP* improvement projects through the use of renewable energy.

Since the 1960s, Yamaha Motor has been expanding businesses that can contribute to improving the standard of living of people in developing countries in Africa and Central and South America. We recognize that cooperation with the United Nations will become increasingly important for the continuance of business activities that work toward resolving issues in the international community.
