The Tokyo Metropolitan Government has pushed ahead with the “Find your Green Tokyo! Project” to promote efforts to both quantitatively and qualitatively "increase" the city’s greenery, by creating and protecting greenery through every possible opportunity.
Meanwhile, as we turn our eyes to the situation surrounding greenery in cities in recent years, the functions required of cities and people's values have changed. This can be seen in the “use of greenery to help solve social issues” such as adaptation to climate change and a growing "need for open green spaces, etc." triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Cities overseas have also been taking various initiatives, including installing green infrastructure systems, with an ever-greater emphasis placed on the harmony between the natural environment and urban functions the world over.
Under these circumstances, the TMG will launch a new greenery project called "Tokyo Green Biz （tentative name）." With our eyes set on the next 100 years, we will work together with Tokyo citizens to further enhance the value of greenery, giving a sense of ease and richness to people’s daily life, and pass our urban green spaces to the future.
By reinforcing our initiatives to "protect," "increase and maintain," and "utilize" the greenery in Tokyo, we will propel the greening of the city and the conservation of biodiversity, thereby evolving the city into a sustainable one that exists in harmony with nature.
“Humans” are but a small part of the natural environment. Yet, each and every one of us, as individuals, hold the key to pursuing harmony between the natural environment and urban functions. We must connect people with nature, and with one another, to pass on the city and its rich greenery to future generations. Under the banner of "Tokyo Green Biz （tentative name）," we will begin “Green Urban Development” for the next 100 years.
GREEN （Greenery, Trees and Green Spaces）×BIZ （Business: Enterprise）
Launching the “New Project on Greenery,” which is to be promoted in cooperation with various entities for Tokyo’s greenery.
A concept to enhance, in cooperation with Tokyo citizens, the value of Tokyo‘s “greenery” and pass it on to the future by “working together with various business （biz） entities," with our eyes set on the next 100 years.
Positioning the “Find your Green Tokyo! Project” as part of the "Future Tokyo: Tokyo’s Long-Term Strategy,” we have steadily pushed ahead our efforts to increase greenery, including creating greenery in conjunction with parks and urban development in Tokyo, and preserving scarce agricultural land.
It has become necessary to respond to changes in circumstances surrounding greenery as we are sought to: utilize greenery to help solve social issues such as storm and flood damage, which have become increasingly devastating due to climate change; to meet a growing need for open green spaces, etc., triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic; and to “put the accumulated benefits of greenery to full use,” including those gained in the post-quake reconstruction, with the passage of 100 years after the Great Kanto Earthquake.
By strengthening our efforts to "protect," "increase and maintain," and "utilize" the greenery in Tokyo, we will promote the greening of the city and the conservation of biodiversity, for instance, thereby evolving Tokyo into a sustainable city that is in harmony with nature.
