Conduct Biodiversity Activities at Overseas Sites with Plants

PT. Meiji Indonesia plants productive trees in water catchment areas on the mountain slopes around the Pasuruan regency.

We at Medreich celebrated the world environment day with purpose and to create more awareness on the environment. Across the locations environment protection related banners were displayed. Saplings were planted by employees to mark the importance of this very significant day. Posters were created, and employees were issued badges, environment tip cards. Employees were also encouraged to give environment related speeches to spread their knowledge on saving environments. Along with the above, Employees took Oath at every location for protecting Environment.

Biodiversity Conservation in the Nemuro Nature Conservation Area

Meiji concluded an agreement for the conservation of wild birds with the Wild Bird Society of Japan in 2007. Based on this accord, we jointly established a bird sanctuary in the Nemuro Nature Conservation Area, which we own (467ha) for nature restoration. This conservation area is located in Nemuro City, Hokkaido. Our employees provide volunteer work hours here to protect the environment, and the area is also used for the environmental education of local residents. The Nemuro Nature Conservation Area is host to Grus japonensis, Himantopus himantopus himantopus, Haliaeetus albicilla albicilla, Haliaeetus pelagicus and other endangered wild birds noted on the Red List*.

  • *Japan's Ministry of Environment evaluates the risk of extinction for various wild animals native to Japan. The ministry publishes a Red Data Book listing these animals and their circumstances, categorized by plant and animal species.
