INPEX held its 15th biannual reforestation event on October 21, 2017 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 2010, with the aim of nurturing exchanges 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 until 2019.
A total of 96 participants consisting of INPEX employees and their families and members of local organizations including the Nagaoka bureau of regional promotion engaged in tree planting and weeding activities. Children also enjoyed taking part in a logging competition and craft making. Following the activities, the participants held a social gathering to promote friendship between the local communities and INPEX.
