GREENable (Hankyu Hanshin Department Stores, Inc.)

In cooperation with Maniwa City in Okayama Prefecture, we are promoting "GREENable," an activity to expand sustainable lifestyles through products, services, and experiences in the Hiruzen Plateau, located in Daisen-Oki National Park.

In recognition of these activities, at the end of March 2022, we became the first department store company in the industry to be certified as an "Official Partner of National Parks of Japan" by the Ministry of Environment.


Local Production for Local Consumption of Wood to Promote the Circulation of Osaka's Forests(Souq Company Co., Ltd.)

The Souq Company Co., Ltd. has focused on the promotion of forest circulation. First, Osaka Prefecture and Umeda Souq collaborated with wood craft artists to plan the commercialization of local wood products, which started being sold at Umeda Souq from May 2021.

At the same time, the Osaka Prefectural Government, fixture manufacturers, and the Souq Company collaborated to study the creation of a system for using interior materials and fixtures in retail to accelerate the circulation of forests. We have developed a reusable construction-type lease fixture using locally thinned wood and realized it at Hankyu Umeda Main Store in October 2021.

In the future, we will continue to make full-scale efforts to create products and systems that contribute to forest recycling.
