A wide variety of organisms live on the earth, and by intricately intertwining these organisms to form an ecosystem, it has a restoration function that absorbs various external changes and restores them to their original state. Idemitsu Group recognizes that passing on this ecosystem to the next generation and maintaining an environment where diverse organisms can continue to live is also an important mission for companies to fulfill. Therefore, from the design stage of various facilities, we are striving to consider the environment in each area of air, water, and soil, which are indispensable for the habitat of living things.
The territory of the Group's business activities is expanding all over the world, but Japan, which is the core of our activities, has a land with a long north-south difference in elevation and is surrounded by the sea. It is home to many species and is one of the 36 hotspots for biodiversity in the world.
In order to leave a treasure trove of precious biological resources in such a world to posterity as much as possible, the Group has positioned the preservation of biodiversity as one of the policies for environmental conservation and is continuing its activities. In addition, we have expressed our support for Keidanren's "Keidanren Declaration of Biodiversity and Action Guidelines"* from the beginning, and aim to contribute to the penetration of biodiversity in industry.
