Biodiversity Conservation Initiatives

Furukawa Electric Group has included biodiversity conservation measures in our Basic Environment Policy. We have formulated and are applying Furukawa Electric Group comprehensive guidelines in relation to initiatives aimed at protecting biodiversity.

While registering with the JBIB (Japan Business Initiative for Biodiversity) and gaining a better understanding, our Group company Furukawa Research, Inc. started the cultivation activity of Pulsatilla cernua designated as an Endangered Species Ⅱ(note 1), on a premise of Yokohama Works. In fiscal 2016, the plant was provided to Hiratsuka Works and Chiba Works and the cultivation activities are also implemented.

(note 1) Endangered Species Ⅱ is a category of species for which the danger of extinction is becoming more serious.
