In 1955,the citizens and government of Toyooka jointly launched an effort to protect the storks, starting an artificial breeding program in 1965. It took until 1989 for this initiative to produce the first chick.Storks flew again in Toyooka in 2005. It is also of note that 2007 saw the first stork born in the wild in Japan in 43 years. The fledgling survived and grew. More than 100 storks are now in Toyooka.

Solar panel factory in the city of Storks

That project was unparalleled worldwide in terms of its scale and success in breeding and repopulating an area. Kaneka was impressed by Toyooka´s challenge because Kaneka started work on solar panel in 1980 from the point of view of environmental protection,and viewed Toyooka as ideal for demonstrating that people and nature can happily coexist.
In1999,the Kaneka Group began operating the world´s largest amorphous silicon photovoltaic module plant.The main motivation for choosing Toyooka was the zeal of its goverment and people for returning storks to the wild.
Kaneka believed that solar panel production could help safeguard the environment. We will supply our products to the world from Toyooka in which wild storks could live.
