Preserving Biodiversity (Non-consolidated)
Endorsing the aims of the Keidanren (Japan Business Federation) Declaration of Biodiversity, MGC signed on as a promotional partner of the Declaration in 2009.
In 2014, MGC became a member of the Keidanren Nature Conservation Committee with the aim of engaging in activities to protect the natural environment and conserve biodiversity.
Companies that manufacture chemicals handle a large volume and variety of chemical substances. Each Group company takes comprehensive measures and exercises due care to prevent leaks and other incidents that may have an impact on human health and ecosystems.
MGC strives to mitigate climate change by conducting reliable chemical management founded on responsible care, conserving energy, and reducing emissions of GHG and to maintain a rich natural environment and preserve biodiversity.
Furthermore, we contribute to sustainable development through the development of technology that can be assessed as eco-friendly products, and the proliferation of these products.
We undertake activities that support biodiversity through close-at-hand activities at each plant, such as flower-growing campaigns within plant sites and maintenance of forest preserves in surrounding areas, as well as addressing the issues of plastic in the oceans by cleaning up rivers and harbors neighboring our sites.
“Bookcase for Biodiversity” donation program
We have been cooperating in the promotion of understanding and enlightenment activities on biodiversity through our participation in the “Bookcase for Biodiversity” donation program, implemented by the Japan Committee for UNDB (United Nations Decade of Biodiversity). In fiscal 2019, we donated books to the Hiratsuka City Central Library, in Hiratsuka, Kanagawa Prefecture and Ibaraki Kasumigaura Environmental Science Center in Tsuchiura, Ibaraki Prefecture.
