Conservation Activities at “Sawayaka Shizen-no-Mori”
We have designated the forests that provide water resources to eight locations near the plants of the soft drink business as Sawayaka Shizen-no-Mori and we work with ocal municipalities in each area to conduct forest preservation activities that help protect those water resources.
In 2015, as many as 500 community residents, including our employees and their family members, participated in activities at the Sawayaka Shizen-no-Mori in the prefectures f Shiga, Kyoto, Hyogo, Tottori, Hiroshima, Saga, Kumamoto, and Miyazaki. Through pruning and trimming activities, we worked to protect the forest and strove to promote nvironmental education among children.
Our company rugby team members provide rugby instruction to a wide range of age groups, from young children to university students, to help them improve their rugby skills. By holding clinics not only for students, but also for instructors, we are able to convey the importance of basic skills and safe ways to compete in the sport.
In 2015, rugby clinics were held in Fukuoka, Osaka, and Kagoshima Prefectures.
