CSR Activity

CSR Activity

INTEM Consulting Inc., which is conducting global operations, is conducting various CSR activities, considering that we have a mission to use the technological capability it has cultivated and the knowledge it has gleaned from its various activities to contribute to global society. We are also aggressively working to promote domestic understanding of international cooperation activities through publishing research results, lectures and trainings, etc.

People, Wetlands, Wildlife

INTEM Consulting Inc. has undertaken the ” FY 2019/2020, National Parks Resource Management Project Subsidy (Wildlife Tourism Promotion Project)” and has established the People, Wetlands, Wildlife (PWW)website. PWW publishes information in English on the domestic Ramsar Convention wetlands and their surrounding natural environments, communities and cultures. The purpose of the website is to introduce the attractiveness of the Ramsar site to potential foreign tourists (‘Inbound tourists’) around the world.
INTEM Consulting Inc. consultant James McGill and Ramsar Center Japan (NGO) Fellow Reiko Nakamura (Former Secretary-General) serve as guides to various Ramsar Convention registered wetlands around Japan. PWW uses articles, blogs, photos and videos to introduce the attractiveness of the wetlands and provide travel information on the surrounding areas and communities. Although up until now only a limited number of websites have been introduced, during 2020 fiscal year it is planned to increase the total number of sites to 13. We are advancing development of the website towards the goal of introducing all 52 registered Ramsar sites.
This project is being conducted with the cooperation of the Ministry of Environment, Meeting of Japanese Municipalities Involved with Wetlands Designated under the Ramsar Convention, Ramsar Center Japan and Wetlands International Japan.
Focusing on Japanese websites, INTEM Consulting Inc. is exploring business expansion into the natural environmental area and further social contribution activities.
