KUBOTA's policy on 'Conservation of Biodiversity'
& our relationship with biodiversity
In December 2009, in order to conserve biodiversity and ensurethat natural resources are used in a sustainable way, the KUBOTA
Group incorporated a principle on biodiversity into its Environmental Action Guidelines.
To impose order on KUBOTA's relationship with biodiversity, we also drafted the list shown below. KUBOTA definesits business domains as 'food,''water'and 'the environment.' All our business activities use the bounty of nature in some form, while simultaneously having a major impact on animal and plant life.
