Initiatives for Biodiversity
The Fujikura Group's initiatives
The Fujikura Group aims to become a corporate group that is friendly to both people and the global environment. As a means to attain this goal, we have established and begun to apply the Group's guidelines on biodiversity conservation this fiscal year. Biodiversity refers to the diversity of ecosystems, species and genes. All creatures on Earth are directly or indirectly connected with and supported by each other based on biodiversity, which brings about many blessings such as rich ecosystems, and also supports our lives and daily living. Each and every employee of the Group is expected to be keenly aware of this fact and to conduct their business operations in line with the Group's guidelines on biodiversity conservation.
Newsletters and supporters of the Fujikura-Kiba Millennium Woods
Recruiting "supporters" for the Fujikura-Kiba Millennium Woods
In November 2010, we opened the Fujikura-Kiba Millennium Woods in the center of Tokyo, an area where few places exist in which people can enjoy nature. For this bio-garden, the Fujikura Group CSR Committee carried out in-house recruitment of "supporters," whose role would be to help protect and develop the garden. To employees selected as supporters from among the many applicants, we regularly send the garden's seasonal newsletter.

Bio-garden "Fujikura-Kiba Millennium Woods"
Creating an oasis in the center of Tokyo "Fujikura-Kiba Millennium Woods"
Fujikura-Kiba Millennium Woods is a biotope garden (bio-garden) located adjacent to the head office of Fujikura Ltd in November 2010. We created this nature-rich garden for local communities in response to requests for greening that were made to us by local schools and local inhabitants and after receiving special support from local administrative agencies. The bio-garden extends over 2,200 square meters and consists of two ponds connected by a brook, a floating island, and a promenade. It is designed to reproduce a part of the rich forest that existed on the Musashino Terrace several hundred years ago. We named the garden the "Fujikura-Kiba Millennium Woods" in an effort to protect this natural reproduction long into the future in cooperation with local inhabitants.
