Caring for the future / Yokohama Rubber's Sustainability
YOKOHAMA Forever Forest activities
Aiming to assert world-class strength in technologies for protecting the environment, Yokohama Rubber is encouraging its employees around the world to create forests with their own hands. Starting with tree planting at the Hiratsuka Factory on November 11, 2007, the Forest Forever Project has planted trees at 14 Yokohama Rubber locations in Japan and 21 locations in eight countries overseas. The project achieved its initial goal of planting 500,000 trees by September 2017, the 100th anniversary of Yokohama Rubber’s founding. Going forward, we will continue to promote these activities at all our facilities in Japan and overseas as we endeavor to achieve our ultimate goal of either planting or providing saplings for a total of 1.3 million trees by 2030.
