Greetings from the Chairman ~ To pass the blessings of the environment to the next generation

Mitsuki Kobayashi

From problems on the global scale to environmental issues close to our daily lives, we affect the environment in various scenes of life, and are affected by that same environment. While receiving the blessings of the beautiful natural environment of Hokkaido, we wish to pass it down to the next generation in a healthy state, not only by governmental response, but also be personally recognizing the relationship we have with the environment, and taking action in environmental conservation.

To do so, in addition to establishing places of learning with the people involved in environmental conservation, our role at the Hokkaido Environment Foundation is to provide support in the form of people,knowledge,information and funds. With this mission, we are working to promote coordination and cooperation, and foster environmental conservation awareness, by mediating between the government, Hokkaido citizens, and businesses.

We ask for your cooperation so the beauty of the Hokkaido environment will be preserved into the future.

Chairman of the Board Mitsuna Kobayashi
