1. Overview of the SAVE JAPAN Project
The SAVE JAPAN Project is a program in which Sompo Japan Nipponkoa make donations to environmental NGOs/NPOs and other organizations that correspond with the number of customers who decides to select the “web-based insurance clause” option when enrolling in automobile insurance or to use recycle parts when repairing automobile.
It carries out activities to conserve biodiversity with citizens in cooperation with the Japan NPO Center, the NPO support centers that support civic activities in local regions, and environmental NGOs/NPOs nationwide. The project provides opportunities for citizens to rethink their local environment and aims to “create livable environments for living creatures.” by promoting environmental conservation through the cooperation of companies, NGOs/NPOs, and residents.
