Environmental and Social Contributions
CSR and Social Contribution at Kumiai
We practice safe, reliable agricultural production, strive to protect the natural environment for future generations, and contribute to local development. In everything we do, we want to be a zero-pollution company that enhances people’s daily lives.
We also undertake various initiatives such as supporting research activities by collaborating with academic institutions, supporting AgriFuture Japan with the development of new farm managers, and sponsoring a university essay competition to promote agricultural education.
Kumiai supports a paddy land conservation group in Kikugawa City, Shizuoka Prefecture, and supplies high-quality timber through ownership, maintenance and management of 640 hectares of forest land in Hokkaido. We are also working on broader conservation activities, such as reducing greenhouse gas emissions and helping to promote groundwater recharge.
In addition, we sometimes host forums to exchange views with local residents, while also providing briefings and plant tours for local government officials, including ward mayors. By deepening public understanding of our environmental initiatives and risk management system, we are striving to build relations of trust and friendship with local communities.
