Japanese apparel giant backs Australian land management initiative

24-Feb-2009

Japanese apparel giant Onward Kashiyama has contributed JPY10 million (AUD160,000) to a major Australian environmental initiative, the Australian Land Management Certification System (ALMCS).

This first-of-its-kind contribution will go to support the further development and implementation of the ALMCS.

The contribution is thanks to the apparel maker’s Onward Green Project, which was commissioned in July 2008 with Australian Wool Innovation (AWI) support to help improve the natural environment of Australian wool growing areas. The project itself was inspired by a partnership between the ALM Group, AWI and Elders to pilot the ALMCS with wool growers in Queensland, New South Wales and South Australia.
