The Kii Mountain Range is a UNESCO World Heritage site. In order to regenerate its forest, Panasonic is undertaking a large-scale tree planting project at “Nagaki No Mori – Eternal Forest” in Tanabe City, Wakayama Prefecture in Japan.
This year, on April 18, 2015, approx. 460 employees and their families, mainly from Panasonic Eco Solutions Company, planted approx. 5,000 saplings on 2 hectares of land while learning about the environment and nature.
Since 2007, Panasonic has been planting trees that suit the local environment in countries across the world including in China, Thailand, Czech Republic, Tanzania, and Brazil. The total number of trees it has planted has now reached over 3.3 million.
