Overseas Forest Plantations

コンテンツ

The Oji Group conducts the forest plantation business in 10 areas in 6 countries, thereby securing wood raw materials and contributing to local communities by absorbing CO2 and creating jobs and industries. We are also promoting the acquisition of forest certifications such as FSC™ certification.

License code: CENIBRA (Brazil); FSC™ C008495, SPFL (New Zealand); FSC™ C008418, Pan Pac (New Zealand); FSC™ C017103, QPFL (Viet Nam); FSC™ C016623




Use of Plantation Wood

At forest plantations of the Oji Group, plantation wood that is ready to be harvested is processed into woodchips and used at local pulp mills or transported to Japan on ships dedicated to carrying woodchips. The wood is also used for lumber.


Promotion of Measures against Climate Change Problems

In a forestry ecosystem, trees absorb CO2 from the atmosphere and fix carbon in their trunks, branches, leaves, and roots while they grow. Dead trees, leaves, and branches are not decomposed and emitted into the atmosphere as CO2 immediately. They are accumulated in the soil as soil organic matter containing carbon and emit CO2 gradually as they decompose. Harvested trees do not emit CO2 immediately. Harvested trees are used as lumber for houses and furniture or as paper, retaining carbon over a long period of time. In addition, the use of construction waste materials and unused wood as biomass energy, which is an alternative to fossil fuels, leads to the reduction of CO2 emitted from fossil fuels.

The Oji Group promotes measures against climate change problems by increasing forest plantations while replanting trees after harvesting to maintain forests, thereby absorbing and fixing CO2 (Sustainable Forest Management). We also fix CO2 by reusing paper and paperboard products that are manufactured from plantation wood (Paper Recycling).

CO2 Absorption

Community-Based Forest Plantation Activities

The Oji Group made entry into the overseas forest plantation business in 1973 with the establishment of CENIBRA. At present, the total forest plantation area of the overall Group is 260,000 hectares. What is important for continuing the forest plantation business this far is not only the economic performance of the business but also its sustainable symbiotic relationship with the local environment and communities. Accordingly, Group companies engaged in the forest plantation business carry out a range of environmental and social support activities that are appropriate for the characteristics of each region.

These activities include biodiversity preservation activities for protecting endangered and valuable species. They also include support for areas with poor accessibility to public services such as healthcare and education, including the support for healthcare activities such as the provision of health examinations, open access to health clinics, support for medical emergency transport, as well as support for education such as the maintenance and repair of facilities for nurseries and schools.
