- "Head Office" is a collective term referring to a scope of operations which are subject to external assessment by the ISO14001 Environmental Management System. It consists of the following 3 sites: The Shinjuku Business Site responsible for the planning, marketing and sales of SUBARU products, and corporate operations; the Omiya Business Site responsible for the marketing and sales of SUBARU parts, and constructing SUBARU's IT system; and the SUBARU Academy Site which is a residential training center for employee and dealer education.
SUBARU Building Offered as a Temporary Evacuation Site
The Great East Japan Earthquake that occurred on March 11 severely damaged the public transportation system and paralyzed the traffic network in the Tokyo metropolitan area. Many people were forced to stay away from home finding it hard to return home. We accepted about 60 such stricken people, using the head office building located near Shinjuku Station as a temporary shelter. They were provided with heating in the building throughout the night, cardboard as makeshift sleeping mattresses and information updates on railroad operations.
