“Congratulations on receiving the CO2 Absorption Certification under our prefecture’s program,” Kazuhiro Tarama, Director of Environment Department, Okinawa Prefectural Government said at the ceremony. “We, Okinawa prefecture, expect the Okinawa Prefecture CO2 Absorption Certification Program will encourage society to plant and grow trees, thereby promoting tree planting activities that contribute to creating more carbon sinks. With your two projects, a total of six tons of sequestered carbon were certified, which brought our cumulative total carbon offset to 2,220 with a total of 32 projects. We are grateful for your understanding and support for our certification program, which aims at creating more carbon sinks through tree planting activities. We appreciate transcosmos for your proactive engagement in tree planting activities in the Yaese-cho sports tourism exchange facility. Okinawa prefecture will continue to carry out initiatives under our two key programs – promote carbon forest sink initiatives and create an urban environment full of flowers and greenery - stated in the Fundamental Plan for the New Okinawa 21st Century Vision. Thank you very much again for your continued support for our initiatives.”

“transcosmos first received ISO14001 certification in 2011. Since then, every department has been working towards achieving their own environmental targets,” Kiyoto Onodera, Division Manager of Service Division Ⅷ, DCC Sector, CX Business Headquarters at transcosmos said. “As part of our initiatives, we launched an afforestation program from the previous fiscal year to make our employees realize the importance of environmental conservation through experience. Tree planting in Yaese-cho was transcosmos’s first corporate-wide project. We believe that receiving the certificate from Okinawa prefecture for the project will give us strong motivation for future activities. We will grow and care for the hikanzakura and azalea trees while doubling down on our future tree planting activities. Thank you very much for your continued support.”
