SATO’s CSR Declaration
SATO’s CSR aims to contribute to society by engaging in our main business. We do not think of the general thrust of our CSR activities as reflecting and fulfilling the commitment of SATO’s top management – our CSR itself is simply the way our business has developed over the years. It embraces both corporate culture and climate. So, while top management is important for CSR, it is just one factor of CSR.
This is why SATO’s CSR will not change with changes in top management policy, such as expansions in sales and business diversification. Neither will it change with the pursuit of profits and growth. Nor will it change despite changes in top management itself. The ideals that SATO pursues and indeed SATO’s business itself bring together societal and environmental concerns, creating value and sharing the benefits among shareholders, employees, society and the company itself (FOUR-WAY RETURNS TO STAKEHOLDERS). These four stakeholders form a virtuous circle of contribution made through SATO’s business, with all four enjoying remarkable success. This is the SATO circle.
The SATO Definition of CSR
CSR is the all-inclusive term used to denote SATO’s promotion of contribution to society made through its main business. On a day-to-day basis, management and staff do what needs to be done to maintain SATO’s position as a company trusted and welcomed by society.

SAM CSR Activity
Blood Donation Drive
3rd March 2023, SATO Malaysia Electronics Manufacturing Sdn. Bhd. (Factory) & SATO Auto ID Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. (Sales Office) collaborated with Pusat Darah Negara (PDN) to carry out a blood donation drive at SATO’s factory premises on 3rd of March. SATO Malaysia had been conducting blood donation drives annually for the past decade as part of their efforts to contribute to the society.
This year’s event continued to receive great response with more than 100 SATO staff volunteering to donate their blood.
Blood donation is voluntary and non-remunerated. While the donating of blood may boost the health or emotional well-being of the donor, more importantly, donated blood saves lives in times of emergencies and sustain lives of people with medical conditions that require blood transfusions.
