  • 今回の事例「学生が企業と協同して行う持続可能性活動」”Sustainability activities conducted by students in cooperation with companies”
千葉大学環境ISO学生委員会は2003年に発足し、千葉大の環境マネジメントシステムの運用を主体的に担ってきました。近年、企業と協同することで活動の幅を学外へと大きく広げることに成功しました。

京葉銀行とのecoプロジェクト京葉銀行とのecoプロジェクト

京葉銀行とのecoプロジェクト」「環境イベントプロジェクト」「里山保全プロジェクト」「古紙・間伐材活用プロジェクトの4つがあり、これらのプロジェクトでは市民、子どもたち、学生、企業経営者などに対して、エネルギー、資源、リサイクル、グリーンコンシューマー、海や山の保全などをテーマに、環境意識の啓発活動や環境教育を行うなど、学生と企業が協同することで幅広いステークホルダーを巻き込んだ活動ができています。
一般的に学生団体の環境活動は学内にとどまってしまいがちですが、企業と協同することで活動の幅や影響を及ぼせる対象が大きく広がるということが証明されました。例えば、資金の援助、場所の提供、機会の提供、活動パートナーの紹介、商品開発などはどれも学生だけでは難しいことも多いです。また、企業の人と一緒に活動することは学生にとって刺激も多く、実務スキルも身につきます。一方、企業は環境貢献だけでなく学生の実務教育支援という社会貢献も同時にできるというメリットがあります。

The Chiba University Student Committee for Environmental Management Systems was established in 2003 and is responsible for operating the university's EMS. In recent years, they have succeeded in greatly expanding the scope of activities outside the university by cooperating with companies. There are four projects: "Eco project with Keiyo bank", "Environmental event project", "Satoyama preservation project", and Utilization of used paper project". In these projects, they carry out environmental awareness and environmental education activities for citizens, children, students, business owners, etc. on themes including energy, resources, recycling, green consumerism, and sea and mountain conservation. The collaboration between students and companies has allowed activities involving a wide range of stakeholders.
Generally, environmental activities of organizations managed by students tend to take place just in the university campus. However, the Student Committee proved that the range of activities was more extensive by the collaboration with companies. There are many things that are difficult only with students (examples; support of the cost, the provision of the site and the opportunities, the introduction of the activities’ partner and the development of the goods). Also, the projects can impact more people. Collaborative activities with companies have a considerable influence on students, and they can learn business skills. On the other hand, companies can play a significant role in society not only in contributions to the environment but also in the educational support of students.

「里山保全プロジェクト」
学生委員会は複数の企業(公益社団法人環境生活文化機構・佐川急便株式会社、川崎汽船株式会社)と連携し、企業の保有する土地で植樹と里山保全の活動を実施しています。

「古紙・間伐材活用プロジェクト」
2015年から行っている三菱製紙販売株式会社との共同プロジェクトです。学生がそれまで大学から排出される古紙が無償で業者に回収されていたのを、有償で回収してもらうように大学に提案しました。そこで回収した古紙売却金の一部を学生委員会がもらい受け、学生・教職員に向けた、間伐材や古紙を使用した環境意識啓発品を同社と協力して製作し、配布・販売を行っています。

Students and companies act on 4 projects: 

"Eco project with a local bank"
The Student Committee started an eco-project, which is titled "Take a rainbow from Chiba to the world", with Keiyo Bank, Ltd. in 2017.

2. The company consulting by students for "Eco Action 21(EA21), authentication of EMS within Japan"
Keiyo Bank introduces transacting companies for students, then students do consulting for the companies or support them making environmental reports.
3. Seven environmental contribution projects
Keiyo Bank mainly does the arrangements of each project, and students mainly do contents-making and the day management.

"Environmental event project"
This event called "Chiba Winter Fes," and started in 2018.

Chiba Winter FesChiba Winter Fes

Students appealed to the university and companies and were able to get their sponsorship. After that students planned many events. For example, they planned a former professional baseball player's lecture, a television station's public recording, club performances on-stage, food stalls, and flea markets. Students managed these events by four companies' funding. They also asked an auto manufacturer to display a fuel cell vehicle. They also asked to present their panels to more than ten companies. Students were able to complete this event because of the support of many companies. 

"Satoyama preservation project"

To make mountain forests that are not cleaned for a long time by people into places where many people can enjoy activitie, students cooperated with many companies (the Ecological Life and Culture Organization, SAGAWA EXPRESS CO., LTD. and KAWASAKI KISEN KAISHA, LTD.) and carry out tree planting and Satoyama preservation activities at the lands owned by the companies. They do many activities like tree planting, weeding, and tree felling to protect Satoyama. 

"Utilization of used paper project"
This is a joint project with Mitsubishi Paper Sales Co., Ltd. and started in 2015. Used papers discharged by the university used to be collected by contractors for free. However, students received an advice from the company that used papers were able to be collected for profit, so students suggested this plan to their university. Then, students receive parts of proceeds, and they manufacture and hand out or sell environmental awareness products for students and faculty staff with the company.
