Activities to Preserve Biodiversity

The Group is making comprehensive efforts towards the realization of a “low carbon society”, a “recycling-oriented society” and a “society in harmony with nature”, which together make up the three conditions for a “sustainable society”. Among them, the realization of a “society in harmony with nature” requires that biodiversity is properly maintained, that human beings live in harmony with nature on earth, and that it remains possible for us to enjoy the blessings of our ecosystem.
The Group hopes to contribute to the restoration and maintenance of ecosystems through biodiversity conservation activities.
