We will also continuously support the promotion of science and technology, art, culture, education, welfare, and other topics.
With local community
Sanyo Chemical Forest creation activity
In agreement with the purpose of the Kyoto Model Forest Initiative (efforts made by Kyoto Prefecture to protect and nurture the forests in Kyoto together with Kyoto citizens who have been receiving the blessings of the forests), we have been conducting the Sanyo Chemical Woodland project around three times a year in Wazuka Town, Sagara-gun, Kyoto Prefecture since FY2009.
In addition, we provide funding to the forest management fund of the Kyoto Model Forest Association to give support to the forest development project (thinning, etc.) in Wazuka Town. We also participate in the Chagenkyo Festival, an event in Wazuka Town, by setting up our booth.
