F.tech’s Efforts to Create Forests
Amid the rising social interest in preventing global warming and preserving biodiversity, many companies are getting focused on and involved in “creating forests” as part of their environmental CSR initiatives.
Given this situation, F.tech took part in a “ceremony to conclude an agreement with Saitama Prefecture”, to create a forest, on February 4, 2015. The agreement was concluded between F.tech, Saitama Prefecture, and the Saitama Agriculture and Forestry Corporation.
F.tech has “adopted” the mountains around Moroyama-machi, and from now on, our employees will carry out periodic thinning of the forest and pruning of the trees in an effort to create a rich forest.
