CUVEYES Co., Ltd. (Chuo-ku, Tokyo, Representative Director Yasuyuki Natsume, hereinafter referred to as “our company”) will use the smartphone app “SPOBY” with Hirosaki City, Aomori Prefecture, which has signed a Hirosaki regional revitalization partner company agreement, to hold a walking event in Hirosaki City. has been held. Efforts of Hirosaki City aiming to realize “Healthy City Hirosaki” Hirosaki City, which aims to be a healthy city, held a walking event using the smartphone app “SPOBY” for two months for approximately 1,000 Hirosaki citizens and those who commute to work or school in Hirosaki City. Achieved an increase in daily steps.
In addition, according to the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism’s “Guidelines for Investigating the Amount of Walking (Number of Steps) to Assess the Health Promotion Effects of Urban Development,” increasing the number of steps by 1,000 a day reduces medical expenses by approximately 23,000 yen per person per year. Calculating according to these guidelines, the medical cost reduction effect of this initiative is approximately 32,000 yen per person per year, which has helped promote the health of Hirosaki City. “SPOBY” is an application that can quantify the amount of
decarbonization when walking or cycling instead of riding. The amount of decarbonization by the participants of this event was about 2.1 tons in two months, which means that the carbon emissions were reduced when driving about 8,700 km in a gasoline vehicle.
By bringing together the strength of approximately 1,000 Hirosaki citizens and those who commute to work or school in Hirosaki City, we have contributed not only to health, but also to promoting
decarbonization through behavioral change.
The benefits acquired by participants of this event will be exchanged in an event format on the 1st floor of Art Hotel Hirosaki City from 11:00 to 17:00 on January 28 (Sat) and 29 (Sun), 2023. . On the day of the event, we plan to hold a health event hosted by “Central Fitness Club Hirosaki”.

“SPOBY” is the only application service that calculates and visualizes the amount of carbon dioxide suppression when walking or bicycling the distance that should be traveled by vehicle.
In the corporate version released at the end of 2022, it will be possible to calculate the amount of CO2 offset in environmental performance data (Scope 3 Category 7) by scoring the amount of decarbonization during working hours of employees and the amount of emission reduction during remote work. .
Since it leads to an increase in the amount of human activity, it is a solution tool that contributes not only to “decarbonization” but also to “health.”
Timely visualization of organization activity and decarbonization data Data on the amount of activity and the amount of carbon dioxide emission reduction measured by the app is aggregated in a timely manner and displayed on the management screen. As a result, it becomes possible to set targets for environmental load reduction and to review them periodically, which leads to the improvement of the quality of environmental conservation activities.
