Midori Ippai Project Activities LINE 331Yearly Installation of "Green Curtains" at NTT Yamaguchi Building May 28, 2019 NTT West Yamaguchi Group
On May 28, 2019 (Tuesday), a total of 20 participants, including employees of NTT West Yamaguchi Group, took part in the event to plant saplings into planters for the "green curtains" at NTT Yamaguchi Building.
Last year, we adopted the title of "flower curtains," which was named after the "Yamaguchi Yume Flower Expo" (September 14 to November 4, 2018) by planting morning glory to enhance the effect. This year, we planted seedlings of bitter gourd, which is ideal as a green curtain.
To successfully create a green curtain, daily watering under the heat and periodic fertilizing efforts are indispensable. Continuing these efforts allowed for the verdant and luxuriant growth of the leaves into a curtain, as suggested by the name, which is effectively capable of blocking the strong sunlight.
The green curtains can be expected to produce an "energy-saving" effect that helps to prevent the temperature of the office building from rising, while at the same time offering a pleasant view to the eyes and a refreshing feel to the surroundings.
This initiative is also well received among the employees who are working at the offices inside the building.
NTT West Yamaguchi Group will continue to engage actively in such activities to protect the global environment as part of the efforts to reduce CO2 emission and address global warming.
