Absorption and Fixation of CO₂ Through Sustainable Forest management

コンテンツ
  • Target
    The Group promotes absorption and fixation of carbon dioxide by supporting sustainable forest management including expanding forest plantations and preserving company-owned forests to contribute to achieving an 80% GHG reduction by 2050, the long-term target set by the government of Japan.
  • Status of Domestic and Overseas Company-Owned Forests and Forest Plantations
    The Oji Group owns and manages the largest area of forests (190,000 hectares) among private companies in Japan. Overseas, the Group has planted forests in six countries with a total area of 250,000 hectares. This means that the Group owns a total of 440,000 hectares of forests all over the world with an area approximately twice as large as that of Tokyo. Overseas forest plantations include management of forest that protect forest ecosystems, wildlife, and so on and conservation forest for protection of water sources and prevention of sediment runoff. Area under management including forest plantations is 380,000 hectares.
    The Group spends approximately 9.0 billion yen annually for ongoing forest management in order to practice sustainable forest management that takes into consideration the environment,economy,and society.
  • Status of CO2 Absorption and Fixation
    Forests absorb CO2 in the atmosphere and perform photosynthesis, storing and fixing the carbon trunks, branches, and so on. Approximately 12 million tons of CO2 is absorbed each year in conjunction with the growth of the Group’s 440,000 ha of forests in Japan and overseas, and timber equivalent to this absorption amount is sold inside and outside the Group and used internally for lumber products. The Group's domestic and overseas forests have now fixed a total of 120 million tons of CO2, achieving 71% of the 2030 target.
