We know not a few industries and corporations work forest management projects for global warming mitigation as one of the CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility). Though their impacts on Japanese natural resources conservation and regional activation are huge, they are not guaranteed any sustainability and propriety of content since these approaches belong to voluntary initiative legally. Therefore, in summarizing the actual forest management projects' present circumstances and CSR itself, I suggest that any forest management projects' subjects should be encouraged keeping "public interest" "sustainability" "regionality" under the Forest and Timber Fundamental Act (Rev.2001). With recent progress in densely populated in some large cities and depopulation in remote rural areas, forest management project as CSR is getting more significant. The industries and corporations, which could operate the majority of human and material resources, can be asked for the adequate sense of ecosystem healthy and the voluntary initiative to proceed their forest management project as CSR. On that I try to propose the legislation "Forest Management Trust and Consignment Contract Act" which offers any new forest management projects' subjects signed a long-tem contract with forest owners for well conservation stability and its reliability, and the establishment of public scheme "Agreement" with effectiveness and reliability for indirect forest management project support.
