We have concluded a memorandum to jointly pursue environmentally friendly businesses in partnership with Bellmare Futsal Club, which is a company that goes beyond the sports field to earnestly tackle social issues such as the environment while contributing to regional communities.
At Sojitz Pla-Net, our vision is to take on the challenge of entering into new business fields by making the most of plastics and to achieve a prosperous society characterized by safety, security, and eco-friendly resources.
We will fully leverage our knowledge and experience related to recycling, biomass, and biodegradability to tackle social issues with Bellmare outside the futsal pitch so that we can contribute to communities in western Kanagawa.
