Message from the Chairman

   AEON Environmental Foundation was established based on the AEON basic principle of “Pursuing peace, respecting humanity, and contributing to local communities, always with the customer's point of view as its core.” Since then, we have contributed to environmental activities over the past 27 years.
   With the significant social changes which began with the destruction of the Berlin Wall in 1989, it was believed that the issue of the 21st century would be “the environment” and for this reason AEON Environmental Foundation was established.
   In recent years, transnational, global environmental issues have become an urgent issue facing our planet. We believe that prompt grassroots activities that address these issues need to be carried out around the world together with our stakeholders.

   AEON Environmental Foundation not only provides subsidies and environmental education to tree planting activities and environmental groups around the world, but is also strengthening its partner programs with various stakeholders.    In 2009, we created the Nihon Awards for Biodiversity (domestic) based on our collaboration agreement with The United Nations Environment Programme, Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity and in 2010, we established the MIDORI Prize for Biodiversity (international) to commemorate our 20th anniversary. This demonstrates our commitment to honor the accomplishments of individuals and groups working on environmental activities for the conservation of biodiversity.
   Last year, we concluded a collaboration agreement with Japanese Biosphere Reserves Network, marking the beginning of new initiatives for preserving and developing UNESCO Biosphere Reserves.

   At the UN summit in September 2015, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted as international targets for 2030. AEON Environmental Foundation will continue to actively carry out environmental preservation activities aimed at the realization of these goals and to ensure that this beautiful world we call home can be passed down to future generations.
