Basic Philosophy of Biodiversity

To realize a sustainable society, the Yaskawa Group recognizes that our business activities are founded on various services provided by biodiversity and shall promote the conservation of biodiversity through business activities and social contribution activities based on our Basic Philosophy of Environmental Protection and our Basic Action Guidelines under the concept that the protection of the global environment is one of the most important themes in common to all human beings.

Action Guidelines

  1. We shall strive to prevent global warming, recycle and save resources, and perform appropriate management of chemical substances in our business activities.
  2. We shall promote our environment/energy business domain to reduce environmental loads from both energy saving and energy creating aspects.
  3. We shall deepen our employees’ knowledge on biodiversity and collaborate with the local community, administration, NPOs, and NGOs to carry out activities both internally and externally.

Biodiversity Conservation Initiatives

・Acorn Tree-Planting Event

In the Kitakyushu area, where our head office is located, we are participating in the “Acorn Bank” initiative of Kitakyushu’s “Environmental Capital One Million Tree Planting Project: Creating Greenery Where Birds Sing in the Hibikinada Region.”
In March 2022, a group of 9 people comprised of employees and their families participated in a tree-planting event held at the Hibikinada reclaimed land site in Wakamatsu ward.
In this tree-planting event, together with people from other companies and Kitakyushu residents, we were able to plant a total of about 1,500 acorn seedlings.

・Activities to exterminate invasive alien species

Since FY2017, we have engaged in activities to exterminate “Coreopsis Lanceolata,” an invasive alien species inside the plant facilities.
We learned about the invasive alien species that is adversely affecting the regional ecosystem, confirmed appropriate extermination methods, and implemented extermination activities.


In the new head office (so-called “Robot Village”) opened in June 2015, we created the “Greenbelt” in which we planted approximately 100 species of trees, mainly consisting of locally indigenous species, in consideration of biodiversity. We shall continue to foster this forest, which is open to the general public on weekdays, as a place where citizens can familiarize and interact with nature.
In the future, Yaskawa would like to use this forest as a place for education by planning events, such as observing the organisms and animals that inhabit the forest, as well as planting trees.
