Working with greenery as we do, we see unusual phenomena in the plants and living things around us every day.
In the past few years, for example, we frequently see trees in the street that have withered and been damaged in the intense heat in Tokyo. On the other hand, we see foliage plants growing in people’s gardens and insects that should not be in Tokyo in winter.

Each one of these phenomena may be very trivial on its own but we see them as little signs of impending disaster.

At Green Wise, we have begun various projects to cultivate a lifestyle in nature and linked to nature with the theme of Slow Green to combat this situation. We will not create this project on our own. We aim to get back to nature and connect with the next generation through the initiatives of companies, organizations and individuals who approves of our themes.

It is also to cultivate this kind of connection that Green Wise offers a Green Platform. We hope that as many people and living things as possible can connect with each other and continuously expand this circle.
We also hope that we will be able to face up to difficult issues together and take the first step to creating an even better future in harmony with nature – a society that co-exists with the environment.
