NEC announced "NEC Group Environmental Management Action Plan 2017/2030" where one of the key purposes was "Contribution to conserving biodiversity" in June of 2010, and we are deploying activities based on the "NEC Group Principles for Conserving Biodiversity."
To improve the environmental awareness of NEC Group employees, a nature experience program from rice growing to sake-making is held throughout the year.
This project also seeks to develop and verify the contributing to ecosystem observation and biodiversity preservation using "IT and network technologies".
