Oji Forest Nature School

The Oji Forest Nature School was first held in 2004 through collaboration with the Japan Environmental Education Forum. It is an environmental education program for children that provides opportunities to experience nature by using forests owned by the Oji Group and Group mills. The program deepens understanding of the connections among forests, people, and industry and is an important opportunity to convey the Group’s attitudes and approaches to environmental preservation to future generations.

Protecting and Nurturing Forests for Thriving Oceans

The 69th Oji Paper Tomakomai Mill Tree Planting Festival was held on May 22, 2019 at the Ojiyama company-owned forest in Tomakomai Takaoka. The festival has been held since 1950 based on the idea that preservation and nurturing of forests leads to thriving oceans. Since 1995, the festival has been held with the Tomakomai fishery cooperative.
In 2018, a total of about 100 persons including mill employees and other involved persons, members of the fishing association, local co-op, Tomakomai River Office of the Tomakomai Ekimae Commerce Association, Muroran Development and Construction Department, Hokkaido Regional Development Bureau as well as personnel from the Tomakomai City Environmental Preservation Section and others participated as a part of implementation of the Tomakomai City Environmental Preservation Plan. A total of 1,150 seedlings (500 red pine and 650 Japanese oak) were planted on a 0.65 ha area that was damaged by strong winds in October 2015.
The participants hope that the planted seedlings will grow into beautiful trees and will continue protecting them in the future.

Community-Based Forest Plantation Activities

At present, the total forest plantation area of the overall Group is 250,000 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.
