Aiming to Realize a Society in Harmony with NatureEnvironment

At COP15 held in December 2022, Nature Positive was set as a new international goal to halt and reverse biodiversity loss to put nature on a path to recovery by 2030.
In the "Forest of Takao 100 years," which Sagawa Express owns in Hachioji City, Tokyo, we undertake initiatives to contribute to Nature Positive.

Forest Preservation

Over a decade of forest preservation activities through the Forest of Takao 100 years project

Sagawa Express is working to preserve forests, which help absorb CO2 emissions from delivery trucks and other aspects of our business activities. The Forest of Takao 100 years project started in 2007, carried out by the cooperative efforts of numerous parties including citizens, universities and other educational institutions, academic experts, and NPOs. The restoration of undeveloped satoyama valuable for preventing global warming and where people and nature can exist in harmony is symbolized by the phrase "100 years," with the project proceeding on an unhurried, natural time scale.
