Our refineries developed and have maintained significantly larger green belt area than the area required by the law since they were constructed. This initiative is based on the recognition that we must coexist in harmony with society, including local residents, and minimize the environmental impact when operating our refineries. Maintaining the green belt area means preserving the flora and fauna habitat within it, and this is a form of our contribution to biodiversity.
Our initiative like this is highly evaluated by external organizations. Hokkaido Refinery and Aichi Refinery have received the highest grade of 5 (Superlative Stage) in the "Social and Environmental Green Evaluation System (SEGES)" organized by the Organization for Landscape and Urban Green Infrastructure.
