Biodiversity Protection

Involvement with Biodiversity

Sysmex uses water in its core reagent production and understands that it receives a host of benefits from the worldʼs living things as part of its business activities. Accordingly, we recognize that preserving the forests that contribute to local watershed protection is an important social responsibility. We also aim to contribute to the preservation of biodiversity.

Forest Conservation Activities

Contributing to Biodiversity Preservation through the “Sysmex Forest”

In fiscal 2013 we began taking part in forest maintenance activities based on the "Enlist the Participation of All Citizens in Creating Woodland" project being promoted by the Hyogo Prefectural Government. To this end, we took responsibility for a two-hectare portion of the 17-hectare Kawai Kaiteki Forest near our reagent factory in the city of Ono, Hyogo Prefecture. We dubbed this portion the "Sysmex Forest" and set about making the Satoyama (a human-influenced natural environment) a place of tranquility for people and wildlife. In fiscal 2017, a total of 205 people participated in these activities, which took place 10 times.

Initiatives at the Sysmex Forest
Initiative Activity
Preservation of Biodiversity
  • Protection of endangered species (such as protecting the habitat of the clouded salamander1 and planting plants to attract the chestnut tiger butterfly2)
  • Protection of rare wild plants (cultivating the Japanese lily to aid its recovery)
Education and Awareness
  • Conducting programs so that children can enjoy coming into contact with nature (hand-painting houses for small birds, cultivating plant cuttings, vegetables and shiitake mushrooms, and taking part in other activities)
  • Registered for the Green Wave, a program being promoted by Japanʼs Ministry of the Environment, Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, and Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism. (invited by the United Nations to take part in the International Day for Biological Diversity (May 22) in 2017)

1 These small Cryptobranchoidea (primitive salamanders) are designated as Vulnerable II in the Ministry of the Environmentʼs Red Data Book.

2 These butterflies are unusual for their long migratory routes; most of them arrive in Japan in spring and migrate around 2,000km in autumn to Taiwan and other southern climes. They are designated as a quasi-endangered species in Chiba Prefecture’s Red List.
