Human Harbor

【CEO】 Isao SOEJIMA

 Yunus Social Business Company (adheres to the 7 principles) 

【Business Ethos】
 In current society, it is hard for those who have a criminal record to re-enter society as they are regarded as failures in life, which causes an increase in a recidivism rate. Our experiences have told us that many of them have high aspirations and the hidden treasure of “great human resources” are in prisons. We serve as a human harbor for them to re-start their new lives in society.

【Primary Business】
 Industrial recycling

【Business Overview】
 We offer the comprehensive social rehabilitation for people released from prisons through the sustainable industrial recycling business and the support to overcome the three major obstacles they face in society; accommodation, education, and employment. The “10 % campaign” is one part of our business where other companies can also contribute to social issues indirectly by outsourcing more than 10% of their industrial recycling business to us.
