Our Strengths

Developing a Diverse Portfolio of Forest Product Related Businesses

Marubeni is conducting various businesses related to the use of forest-derived materials ranging from forest plantation, manufacturing of pulp, and manufacturing and trading of paper products. Also, in the biomass fuel business which is expected to have increasing demand, Marubeni will further expand its supply sources. It aims to maximize the value of forest resources by pursuing economic value through the use of materials and environmental value with an eye toward emissions trading.

Forest management considerate of the environment and local communities

Marubeni has been conducting its forest plantation business since the 1990s. At present, we are operating two projects in Indonesia and Australia, with a total of approximately 120,000 hectares of tree plantable land (the total work area is approximately 300,000 hectares) and are also researching the utilization of forest resources in creating a future decarbonized society.
