Environmental Report 2015
JAE Group ForestThe JAE Group Forest was established in 2004 as a symbol of the Group's environmental policies in order to improve environmental awareness by providing experiences in forest preservation for Group employees, including the protection of the Okutama forest and the replenishment of its watershed.
Last year, on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of JAE Group Forest, we were joined by those who had worked on the project since its inception, and to honor those people, and with new resolve toward the promotion of environmental management, we conducted an anniversary event. Representing the milestone of this 10th anniversary, along with renewing the JAE Group Forest signboard, we planted a commemorative Akishima cherry tree (Prunus cv. Yoko).
*"Akishima cherry tree" is the name used by the Akishima City Tree Planting Promotion Association.
As sustainable activities to preserve the forest, last year, Group employees worked to prepare a forest path and perform selective tree clearing.
