A wide variety of organisms live on the earth, and these organisms are intricately intertwined to form ecosystems that have restorative functions that absorb various external changes and restore the ecosystems to their original state. The Idemitsu Group recognizes that in line with the goals of the Convention on Biological Diversity, passing on these ecosystems to the next generation, and maintaining and restoring an environment where diverse organisms can continue to live, is an important mission for companies to fulfill. Under the Biodiversity Guideline as below, we are working to protect biodiversity while building alliances with local communities.
We continue our business activities while utilizing the natural environment (natural capital) consisting of land, water, air, and ecosystems including a wide variety of species and genes.
The importance of passing on the natural environment (natural capital), which is the foundation of social activities, to future generations in an appropriate manner is a value that we have cherished until now. Idemitsu Group Sustainability Policy clearly states that we will contribute to the preservation of the natural environment and the realization of a circular society by reducing environmental risks from our business activities.
This guideline is established as a supplement to the Idemitsu Group Sustainability Policy and as a guideline for further conservation activities in the field of biodiversity included in the natural environment (natural capital).
