Recently in Japan, Dow announced a partnership with BirdLife International Tokyo to conserve bird habitats. Peter Jennings, president for Dow Japan and Korea visited Her Imperial Highness Princess Takamado of Japan and Honorary President of BirdLife International to commemorate the launch of the new corporate partnership.

BirdLife International is among the world’s oldest and largest international nature conversation partnership. Birds are in the top section of the nature’s ecosystem, making them as an ideal index to evaluate the healthiness of biodiversity. BirdLife promotes various activities around the world by focusing on the key four aspects: protection of species with the highest threats for extinction, securing ecosystem, promoting sustainability, and collaborating with local people.

Dow Japan is working to enhance its role in the communities in the area of nature conservation in partnership with BirdLife. This year, Dow Japan will launch environmental projects in Agano-city, Niigata prefecture and surrounding areas of Kasaoka-city, Okayama prefecture. Efforts are focused on protecting habitat for migratory birds, actions to save wetlands and bird house installation. The effort includes research to understand the important function of wetlands.

“We are both thrilled and honored to have the privilege to be partnering with Birdlife International, a renowned international organization with a great history of successes in the area of environmental conservation,” said Jennings. “Dow Japan is leading the effort to create a more sustainable society and we remain deeply rooted and invested in local communities throughout Japan. We respectfully acknowledge the positive role a company can play in the community in creating a more engaged and sustainable society, and we will continue to take actions that will support both local people and nature in meaningful ways.”
