We actively release information concerning our environmental conservation activities and environmental impact through our website. We reflect the opinions and needs expressed by our stakeholders in the Meiden Group’s environmental activities and environmental training.
For the last 12 years, M WINDS, which conducts the Meidensha Group’s wind power generation business, has held Global Wind Day in conjunction with Sand Craft in Mitane, which is held each year in Mitane, Akita Prefecture, in order to encourage understanding of wind power generation. The event is held at the Hachiryu Wind Farm, which is located at Kamayahama in Mitane, Yamamoto District, Akita Prefecture and has wind turbines arranged in a neat row spanning approximately three kilometers.
The fiscal 2018 Global Wind Day was held on July 28, and it will provide an opportunity for guests to enjoy gaining an understanding and appreciation of wind power generation through a 360° VR experience at the top of the turbine, which is 80 m above ground, and the release of a new video of the workings of a turbine. Furthermore, at Sand Craft in Mitane, M WINDS created its first ever sand craft (sand sculpture).
The Meiden Group will foster greater understanding of the wind power generation business and contribute to the creation of sustainable energy that is rooted in local communities through interaction with local community members.
At the Ohana Ippai Osaki movement (held by the Osaki Machi Unei Kyougikai and the Shinagawa Yumesanbashi Committee) a broad range of volunteers such as Osaki businesses and local preschool children plant flowers in the flower beds around Osaki Station in June and December. Meidensha has participated in this movement since 2012.
In fiscal 2018, the Osaki Machi Unei Kyougikai and the Shinagawa Yumesanbashi Committee jointly received the Shinagawa Environmental Conservation Activity Commendation Award for this movement.
Going forward, we will actively participate in local activities such as the Ohana Ippai Osaki movement.
