Our Corporate and Social Responsibilities
We do not just do great work for our clients, we also try to work for our community and the environment.
We want the work we do to be a force for good in the world. This means more than helping innovative companies protect and profit from their inventions. It means looking at our impact on the world around us and making sure we are always promoting healthy communities, protecting our environment and helping the next generation get the skills they need to succeed.
● Protecting the environment
Reducing our power consumption
It is often the seemingly small steps that can have a really big impact. We have reduced our energy consumption by a third by turning lights off during lunch break, reducing fluorescent lighting on each floor and using LED fluorescent lights.
The Great Forest Wall
The Great Forest Wall Project is aimed at building a protective embankment along the coast affected by the Great Northeast Japan Earthquake. This embankment will consist of soil and debris where trees, primarily castanopsis, machilus and live oak, will be planted. Eventually the planted trees will become a forest that will protect against possible tsunami attacks.
We are proud to be involved in this amazing project(Chairman: Morihiro Hosokawa, former Prime Minister).
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
The creation of a forest not only protects communities and livelihoods from disasters but also contributes to the conservation of natural capital through green infrastructure that utilises the functions of the natural environment. (What are the SDGs?)
