INPEX held its eleventh biannual reforestation event on October 25, 2015 as part of Niigata Prefecture’s Forest Management Support Program. The event was held in the Fudosawa Area of Nagaoka City, an area commonly known as Kitsunedaira Donguri-no-Mori that stretches over approximately 0.8 hectares.
INPEX has held this event since the fall of 2010, with the aim of deepening relations with the local communities and enhancing environmental awareness among INPEX employees through forest management activities in areas where the company runs operational sites. INPEX expects to continue this activity over a period of 10 years until 2019.
A total of 140 participants including 94 INPEX employees and their families, 37 local community members, six members from a local organization and three members from the Nagaoka promotion bureau conducted weeding activities, harvested sweet potatoes and planted 30 trees including maples and cherries. They also enjoyed a get-together and a craft-making session for children.
