Nitto Denko Philippines participated in a program to clean up and restore ecotrails at Mt. Makiling on March 3, 2012. This is a volunteer activity started last year aimed at restoration of trails damaged by a typhoon in 2006.
Thirteen members of the CSR team at Nitto Denko Philippines participated in the program for the first time as one of their annual CSR activities. They attended brief lecturers about forest protection before starting out and ventured on a 4 kilometer-long trek. On their way, they placed stones on a walkway for the safety of hikers and enjoyed a valuable experience, seeing big trees considered endangered and communicated with people living on the mountain.
Nitto Denko Philippines will continue to implement environmental conservation activities and contribute to local areas.
|We have so far donated 7 wells to developing countries in Asia, such as Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. This year, in the third fund-raiser for digging wells, we raised 700,000 yen. We made donations through the Japan Asian Association and the Asian Friendship Society. The funds will be used for the construction of wells in the Philippines, Cambodia and Nepal.|
