Yokohama Rubber’s Suzhou site in China’s Jiangsu Province has been given the ‘Forever Forest’ treatment. As part of the Forever Forest Project, which was first launched in 2007, some 5,000 trees were planted at the Suzhou site. Around 250 people, including Koichi Tanaka, chairman and president of Yokohama Rubber (China) Co., Ltd., and Shigeru Nakano, president of Suzhou Yokohama Tire, took part in the planting activities.
As of October 2012, Yokohama Rubber has planted 275,330 trees worldwide as part of the Forever Forest project.
