Achieving contributions and goals as a company involved in distribution

Promoting the reduction of energy and CO2 emission through the establishment of green logistics

As a company involved in distribution, or delivering products from plants to consumers, we continuously strive to reduce our environmental load via "green logistics." We provide "IT-Truck Green Management Certification" developed by us to transportation companies and ensure they also manage operating data for companies outside of the Kokubu Group. Through this effort, we have achieved a reduction in energy use in the supply chain as a whole. In addition, in 2011 we were selected for the Food Industry CO2 Reduction Competition and the Japan Environmental Business Awards thanks to our efforts in supporting transportation companies to obtain Green Management Certification and for our promotion of recognizing the carbon footprint of the entire supply chain.

Creating new forest near our birthplace and passing it down to future generations

Restoring the natural environment by taking care of the company-owned forest in Matsuzaka

We recognize forests as a source of necessary resources for sustainable corporate activities. To preserve this important resource, we implement the "Forest CO2 Absorption Credit Project" (Forest J-VER) in Matsusaka City, Mie Prefecture, the birthplace of Kokubu. We regard this as a long-term project to be passed down to future generations.
