Conservation of Rare Species

Conservation of Rare Species

Every time we install new equipment at our refineries and complexes, we conduct an environmental assessment to shelter any endangered plants species that have been identified through ecosystem surveys. Currently, at the Aichi Refinery we are working to conserve Salvia plebeia, a plant species designated quasi-endangered by the Ministry of the Environment. As this species was discovered on the grounds when new facility construction was undertaken, we have set aside conservation areas within the refinery’s premises.

Undertaking environmental assessments
