Initiatives for Biodiversity
Kanagawa Reforestation Partner System
In April 2020, Amano became a partner in a system sponsored by Kanagawa Prefecture that supports and
cooperates with forest restoration and conservation projects through donations and forest volunteering by employees
of partner companies. As part of the development of Kanagawa water resources , we provide public management
and support of private forests (forests owned by forest cooperatives, etc.) in the target areas,
mainly within the prefecture.
In July 2023, we held events such as nature walks and woodworking in the prefectural 21st century forest as an environmental activity event for Amano Group employees and their families.
At the Sagamihara Factory, we participate in green fundraising sponsored by the Kanagawa Trust Midori Foundation Prefectural North District Promotion Council.
In FY2022, donations and sales of green products totaled 68,014 yen.
Purchasing Eco-friendly Uniforms
We have adopted an eco-marked unisex workwear that uses at least 50% recycled PET fiber. In addition, for each work wear purchased about two saplings are donated to the Green Belt Campaign to plant trees around the foothills of Kenya.
Compliance Management concerning Air Pollution and Wastewater Standards
Since 2016, we have not used heavy-oilfired boilers at any sites. We have no facilities that fall under the Air Pollution Control Act. We have measured levels of water pollutants, and there are no reports of any legal or regulatory values being exceeded.
