To realize a Sustainable Society beginning from the Local Community.
We consider the gifts of nature such: as water, wind, and heat,
which all exist in the local regions as the "local commons*."
To create a sustainable society together with the local communities,
we utilize these potentials that are naturally replenished
*The term "local commons" refers to resources that are the property of the entire society and should be maintained and managed together.
