"Sun(Taiyo)-nurtured Forest of Imabari City"; Taiyo Oil organizes the 5th Forest Regeneration Volunteer Activity

Taiyo Oil organized "Sun(Taiyo)-nurtured Forest of Imabari City", the 5th Forest Regeneration Volunteer Activity on Saturday 20 April in Imabari City, Ehime Prefecture.

The aims of the Activity were to encourage understanding of the value of nature through volunteer participants' encounters with nature and, by promoting multi-layer afforestation, to preserve the diversity of wildlife that has its habitat in the forest and enhance the forest's water retention potential. Participants on the day were Taiyo Oil employees and their families comprising new entrants to the company and former employees.

Taiyo Oil concluded an agreement with Ehime Prefecture and Imabari City on "the corporate afforestation activities". The Forest Regeneration Volunteer Activity was organized through the "Sun(Taiyo)-nurtured Forest of Imabari City", named to reflect the aspirations of "Taiyo Oil employees to voluntarily regenerate and nurture the forest".
