I-PEX Inc.'s I-PEX Campus (Ogori City, Fukuoka Prefecture) received the Chairperson's Award of the Japan Greenery Research and Development Center at the FY2023 Factory Greening Award Program (commonly called the National Award for Greenery Factory).
This award has been given annually since 1982 to recognize factories that have made outstanding achievements in factory greening to promote awareness and understanding.
I-PEX Campus Greening Activities and Reasons for Award
I-PEX Campus is the core base of I-PEX Group, which started operation in 2020 after the renovation of the facilities originally established as a college campus in 1990. More than 500 people, mainly from the engineering, back-office, and mold manufacturing departments, work in the I-PEX Campus Main Building, which was renovated from a university building and converted into offices, and the Tech Forest, a newly built mold factory building to improve and foster mold technologies.
On the approximately 65,000 m2 site, we have inherited and maintained a vast green space of approximately 16,000 m2 that has existed since the days of the college campus. The site has been maintained in harmony with the office and factory environment with numerous plants and lawns, including sycamore trees planted when the college was established and a zelkova tree planted as a symbolic tree when I-PEX campus was established. I-PEX believes that maintaining green spaces and landscaping is its responsibility to coexist with the local community as it continues to utilize the former local landmark college campus as a business site.
The award was given in recognition of the following: the planting of trees, landscape, and environment from the college days were inherited and maintained as they were; the entire green space is neat, beautiful, and clean with good maintenance and management; and the planting of seasonal flowers and local city trees contribute to creating the image of the community.
Contribution to Climate Change Response and Recycling-Oriented Society
I-PEX has identified "Tackle climate change and contribute to a recycling-based society" as one of the six key issues (Materiality) for sustainable growth, and is working to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, as well as to develop products that can solve environmental issues.
We will continue and promote the greening of our factories as one of these sustainability activities, and contribute to the development of society by building a sustainable business model and creating value over the medium to long term.
