Beach Clean Activities as a Member of Enosueco Supporters
Since fiscal 2019, we have been supporting the "Enosui Eco" campaign promoted by the New Enoshima Aquarium (also known as "Enosui"), which conveys the ecology and eco-action of living things in Sagami Bay. In addition to supporting conservation activities such as surveys and research on biodiversity and environmental diversity in Sagami Bay, regional beautification, and waste reduction, we actively participated in beach clean-up activities.
Participation in tree-planting activities
Thai NOK Co., Ltd., a our group company, participates in tree-planting activities sponsored by the Amata Industrial Park every year. We also made effective use of waste by taking valuable materials out of the collected waste and converting them into cash for donation to local schools and hospitals.
Noyaki volunteer activities
The vast grasslands of the Aso region in Kumamoto Prefecture are maintained by "Noyaki," a spring tradition in Aso. It is said that this field burning has been carried out for about 13000 years, and its purpose is to protect the grassland of Aso, which creates a unique landscape and is a habitat for a wide variety of plants and animals. The NOK Kumamoto Plant participates in noyaki every year by the local wilderness association.
Participation in cleaning activities
We participated in a cleanup activity as part of the "Shiba District Clean Campaign - Zero Street Smoking Town! ."
