A forest conservation project in Misato Town, known as “Matsunouchi Harrow (PJ No. 364)”, has been certified as the first private-sector J-credit project in Miyazaki Prefecture.  This project is managed by Seirin, a non-profit organization (headquartered in Hyuga City, Miyazaki Prefecture) and Yamasan Tree Farm (headquartered in Higashi-usuki-gun, Miyazaki Prefecture), both of which are SGEC-certified entities.
The SGEC-certified forests in this project are expected to contribute to carbon offsetting and reduce CO2 emissions by 51,214 tons.
This project demonstrates sustainable forest management through SGEC certification and is expected to contribute to the SDGs.

Book Using KFCC-Certified Paper published

In Korea, the neighboring country of Japan, paper certified by the Korea Forest Certification Council (KFCC) has been produced. The practical book "Art: Art Management" (The Creators Publishing Co., Ltd.) uses certified paper with both KFCC and PEFC trademarks printed on the back of the book.
The use of certified paper in Korea is not only beneficial for the environment but also for cultural and economic activities. It provides a good opportunity for companies to communicate to readers that they are actively involved in environmental conservation. The spread of certified paper use around the world would be a significant step towards a more sustainable society.
