Tree Planting

Toshiba Group is promoting tree planting activities in 13 locations in Japan and in 18 countries globally by working mainly at our major operations and affiliated company sites (as of July 2015).

Since 2009, we have been actively contributing to a recycling-based society in Misawa City, Aomori Prefecture, by having the Toshiba Group print on paper made from thinned trees in cooperation with paper manufacturers and the environmental NPO Office Chonai-kai. We aim to be able to reduce our burden on the environment as much as possible, suppress our consumption of natural resources, and promote the use of recycled trees from thinning. To do this, we will create a system to promote a renewal of tree thinning that links the thinning of trees to the use of the paper.
