PARCO is the Italian word for “park,” and much like a park itself, we provide a place where people come together to share time and space, and where they can relax and have fun. We are working to enhance the appeal of local communities and contribute to realizing a society that offers urban consumers fulfillment by devising creative business activities with a grasp of local needs and trends.
Events and promotions held in collaboration
with local communities
Initiatives for peace of mind and safety
Since PARCO stores are places where members of local communities gather, we have taken a wide range of measures to ensure both the peace of mind and safety of the people who visit our stores.
1. Initiatives to achieve “Safety in day-to-day living”
Checks are also made as needed to ensure that restaurant menus display appropriate information, and that raw ingredients, potential allergens, and expiration dates are all properly displayed.
2. Initiatives to achieve “Safety in the shop”
We also have staff who are specially trained in disaster prevention roles, and they practice each day.
We actively participate in fire-fighting technology training tournaments held by local fire stations, and have achieved some good results. We also offer training to the shop staff on how to use fire extinguishers so that they can take action in initial fire fighting. We have set up an information system that links each shop to our Disaster Prevention Center so that the shops can rapidly respond to emergencies.
Furthermore, we are actively involved in crime prevention activities, holding regular training sessions designed to share examples of problematic behavior and other aspects of crime prevention.
3. Initiatives to achieve “Life-protecting safety”
All shops have an AED (Automated External Defibrillator) and the staff is trained in their use.
4. PARCO Group Business Continuity Plan (BCP)
The “PARCO Basic Business Continuity Plan for Major Earthquake Disasters” was formulated in 2011, and revises it about once a year in line with changes in the times, and updates and improves the contents.
We conduct regularly scheduled BCP drills each year to test our about to react quickly to scenarios simulating the occurrence of an actual major disaster. At Nagoya PARCO, we adopted a ground filtration system as a measure to ensure potable water supplies exist should a natural disaster occur. The filtered groundwater is used for drinking water and facility equipment throughout the complex.
