On October 14 and 15, 2022, ROHM held an environmental event for employees and their families at the biotope area of ROHM head office.
ROHM promotes greening activities and ecosystem preservation activities to achieve "Coexistence with Nature," one of the three themes set forth in the ROHM Group Environmental Vision 2050. As a measure to achieve this goal, in March 2022, we established a biotope area of approximately 8,400 m2 on the grounds of our head office, based on the concept of "a place that connects Roam, local communities, and living creatures. This area is currently being used as a place for environmental education.

■October 14 Guided Tour for Investigating Living Organisms
On the 14th, a guided tour to investigate living creatures was held for employees at an environmental event, with approximately 20 people participating.
The guided tour was designed for employees to learn about the plants and animals living in the head office grounds, including the biotope area, while walking around with an expert guide, with the aim of reaffirming the importance of biodiversity for employees.
On the day of the tour, after explaining the connection between the ROHM Group's environmental vision and this initiative and the concept of the biotope area, the guides gave a lecture on the plants and animals living in the biotope area, and participants looked for insects such as grasshoppers and dragonflies using insect glasses.

■October 15 Rice Harvesting and Satsuma-Imo (Sweet Potato) Hori Event
The purpose of this event was for employees and their families to enjoy learning about ROHM's vision and the importance of ecosystem conservation through the experience of farming in this biotope area.
The rice and sweet potatoes were planted by the participants in June.
On the day of the event, 52 people (24 adults and 28 children) participated, receiving lectures from farmers as they worked.
The rice was harvested by hand with a sickle and bundled to dry. The rice will be dried in sunlight and natural winds until early November, then threshed, milled, and distributed to the participants.


As for the sweet potatoes, it was initially expected that they would not grow well, but the children had fun digging out many of them with shovels.
This event was a valuable opportunity for the children to learn about the difficulties of growing crops and how our food is protected only with the blessings of nature.
