One Placement creates One Plant to Save the Planet
100,000 Trees Planted as of January 2021
Since beginning our mission in 2008, we have now introduced over 100,000 professionals to companies around the world. The PPP initiative (One Placement creates One Plant to Save the Planet) aims to contribute to the ongoing development of our clients and candidates, whilst also taking measures to assist in the fight against global warming.
The initiative is just one of our sustainable development goals (SDGs), through which seek to contribute to individuals, communities, and society as a whole. In January 2021, the PPP project reached a significant milestone of having planted 100,000 trees in designated reforestation areas in Bali, Indonesia, and Borneo, Malaysia.
JAC Group's PPP Project was started by our Group Chairman and CEO, Hiromi Tazaki, in efforts to combat the impact of global warming and the effects of deforestation through illegal logging in some of the countries where JAC has business operations. Since 2008, we have planted one tree for every person placed in a new job. The tree signifies the personal and professional growth of each individual placed in a new job, and the re-growth of our natural environment. The number of trees planted to date is 66,843 in Bali, and 38,720 in Borneo, across an area of 1,200 hectares.
Describing the initiative, Hiromi Tazaki states: “Since the beginning of our PPP Project, we have now actively helped 100,000 people to change jobs whilst planting the same number of trees. As a global recruiting company, our aim is to develop connections between people and companies, which can result in the growth of their communities and society, and ultimately add to our global economy. The initiative encourages JAC Group employees and local residents to participate in and foster awareness around the importance of tree planting. Deforestation occurs by means of both natural disasters and human exploitation of the land. I think it’s paramount that we all collectively contribute to the ongoing environmental conservation of our planet.”
Going forward, this project will continue to grow. The whole JAC Group team will continue to work as one to play a role in furthering our participation in environmental activities.
