The Denka Group’s Policies regarding and Accomplishments in Biodiversity Protection

In recent years, the general public has voiced growing concerns with regard to environmental issues that significantly affect biodiversity. These issues range widely from the pollution of rivers and oceans, including the micro-plastic contamination of marine environments, and coral bleaching to the extinction of wildlife species and the equitable distribution of the benefits of biological genetic resources.
With the Convention on Biological Diversity coming into effect in 1993, a growing number of businesses are striving to help realize the United Nations SDGs and supporting other international initiatives related to biodiversity. With this in mind, Denka is constantly endeavoring to reduce environmental burdens attributable to its production activities by working in collaboration with the entities that comprise its supply chains. At the same time, the Company gives due consideration to the preservation of biodiversity and the natural environment when it is engaged in the construction of hydroelectric power generation facilities and the development of mines. Moreover, Denka is focusing on the sustainable use of resources throughout the course of the development and provision of its products and services. In addition, the Company provides environmental education on a regular basis to ensure that every Group employee is acutely aware of the significance of biodiversity. In these ways, we will step up corporate activities aimed at contributing to a sustainable society.

Examples of concrete initiatives:
Conducting periodic surveys aimed at assessing the impact of limestone mine development on ecosystems in neighboring areas
Engaging in the planting of Japanese evergreen oak and pin oak trees to restore areas that have undergone mining to their original state
Preserving Cephalanthera erecta and Cephalanthera falcata, both of which are facing a growing threat of extinction and have been designated as class II endangered species by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, on the premises of the Denka Innovation Center (Machida, Tokyo) and adjoining areas
Developing a water treatment business via Group company Denka Consultant & Engineering Co., Ltd. by employing its microorganism handling technologies
  • Cephalanthera erecta and Cephalanthera falcata preserved by the Denka Innovation Center
