AEON Forest ProgramAEON Forest Program
With people around the world, we have and will continue to pass the forest full of life on to the future.

AEON tree-planting activities, which commenced in 1991, are positioned as activities that embody AEON Basic Principles. We are currently promoting three activities together with our customers around the world: Tree Planting by AEON Environmental Foundation, AEON Hometown Forests Program, and AEON Tohoku Reconstruction Hometown Forests Program (Tree Planting in areas affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake).

Tree Planting by AEON Environmental Foundation

We plant trees together with volunteers from all over the world with the aim of regenerating forests that have been lost due to natural disasters or logging, restoring disaster-resistant forests, and contributing to the prevention of global warming. To date, we have planted 2.51 million trees with about 134,000 participants in 11 countries around the world, including Japan.

Tree planting activities amid the COVID-19 pandemic

Sapling Foster Parent Project

We entrusted the saplings to volunteers who have previously helped us with tree planting activities, had them grow the saplings at their homes or schools for a year, and then planted them in AEON Forests across the country. Thanks to the sapling foster parents, tree planting activities have continued uninterrupted throughout this project.

30th Anniversary Tree Planting Project

We started this program as a way of expressing our gratitude to all those who have supported AEON Environmental Foundation. In cooperation with local governments, schools, and AEON stores, we plant saplings, mainly cherry trees that are native to each region, and donate the saplings to residents in the hope that they will contribute to the afforestation of their communities
