Forest Protection Activities


The JAPEX Group is engaged in activities and support for forest maintenance in the vicinity of our offices.

These activities not only address climate change and biodiversity conservation, but also provide an opportunity for each employee to think about their awareness of climate change and environmental issues, as well as the relationship between their company and society.
