Collaboration with the Tokyo Para-Sports Association began in 2016.
In 2019, NEC signed a comprehensive partnership agreement with the Tokyo Voluntary Action Center, which plays a central role in promoting volunteerism in Tokyo, in order to foster a volunteer culture, create volunteer legacies and promote the building of an inclusive society by leveraging the strengths of the two organizations.
