Conserving Biodiversity

 Our business activities rely on various ecosystem services, which are provided by natural capital comprising soil, air, water, animals and plants, and other elements.
 The Kubota Group sees conserving biodiversity as one of its materiality. In its business activities and social contribution initiatives, in view of its impact on natural resources, the Group is endeavoring to ensure that care is taken to conserve biodiversity and protect the natural environment.
