In order to further spread the biotope making that is being carried out in all over the Japan, the NPO Japan Biotope Association recruits and commends biotopes that carry out model efforts every year. By announcing the award-winning biotope, they are communicating the importance of the habitat of diverse Creatures for people's lives. “Nissan Bio-Park Nishi-Hongo” was established in 2008 with the theme of returning to the lost nature, and the purpose of "creating spaces with biodiversity, mainly waterfront and communitybased forests, to provide places where employees of the plant and local residents can relax". It has wetlands, ponds, brooks, lawn plazas and flower fields on approximately 2 hectares of land. 
We are also involved in the cultivation of fireflies and beetles and the breeding of the endangered Nihon Medaka with the cooperation of local residents, and retired and current employees of the plant. These efforts promote biodiversity conservation activities. This time, we received high praise for our collaboration with the "support team" consisting of volunteers from the community and retired of the plant which led to the award. Based on our corporate philosophy is "Contribute to the protection of the global environment and the existence/development of humanity, offering the value sought by society", we engage in business activities that take into account biodiversity and help protect the global environment.
