Biodiversity Conservation Initiatives

Furukawa Electric Group includes biodiversity conservation measures in its Basic Environment Policy. Throughout our activities, we are applying Furukawa Electric Group’s comprehensive guidelines in relation to initiatives aimed at protecting biodiversity.

We have registered with the JBIB (note 1) (Japan Business Initiative for Biodiversity) to further develop our understanding of biodiversity. Additionally, the group company Furukawa Research Inc. launched activities in fiscal 2015 to cultivate the class II endangered species (note 2) of flower Pulsatilla cernua within the grounds of Furukawa Electric Co. Ltd.’s Yokohama Works, as part of our efforts to contribute to local society. From fiscal 2016, cultivation activities have also been taking place at Hiratsuka Works and Chiba Works, growing new plants cultivated from the roots of existing plants. In fiscal 2020, we began to share plant roots with group company Furukawa Automotive Systems to further expand cultivation of Pulsatilla cernua. Based in Shiga Prefecture, Furukawa Automotive Systems received recognition for its cultivation of the class II endangered species Pulsatilla cernua and cleaning activities in the local community conducted through its ISO 14001-based environmental management systems in the "Shiga Biodiversity Initiatives Certification 2020" (note 3) program, earning the highest rating of three stars.

(note 1) JBIB: Japan Business Initiative for Biodiversity. Established in 2008, this is a group of companies that are actively working to conserve biodiversity.

(note 2) “Class II endangered species” refers to species with an increased risk of extinction.

(note 3) In 2015, Shiga Prefecture established the Biodiversity Shiga Strategy, which is based on the philosophy of “utilizing the inherent strength of nature and protecting life across generations”. Since 2018, the Shiga Biodiversity Initiatives Certification program has been used to evaluate the efforts of businesses to conserve biodiversity.
