Conservation of Local BiodiversityActivities to Eliminate Lanceleaf Tickseed from the Base of Mt. Fuji

In partnership with the NPO, FUJISAN CLUB, Sekisui Heim Tokai Co., Ltd. carries out activities to eliminate the lanceleaf tickseed plant that grows extensively along the national highways at the base of Mt. Fuji. This activity began in June 2013, when Mt. Fuji was registered as a UNESCO World Heritage site.

In fiscal 2017, Sekisui Heim Tokai employees and their family members participated in the lanceleaf tickseed elimination activity that was conducted on June 7. Prior to the start of the activity, they received an explanation about the alien plant from a FUJISAN CLUB manager and learned that these elimination activities help preserve biodiversity around Mt. Fuji. During the course of the day’s activity, they were able to remove enough lanceleaf tickseed to fill 14 garbage bags.

In the years ahead, while receiving guidance from FUJISAN CLUB, we would like to continue to contribute to the local community, even in such a small way, through environmental conservation activities as a company that is embedded in the area.
