Only One Earth: Top 20 Photos from Nomura’s Global Photo Contest

We have “Only One Earth.” That was the message for World Environment Day 2022, echoing the theme of the Stockholm Conference held 50 years ago when the day was launched on June 5, 1972. Only One Earth is a call for global collective action to celebrate, protect and restore our planet, and a reminder that this is our only home and we must take care of it.

To mark World Environment Day this year, Nomura held a photo contest to encourage our employees across the globe to connect with nature and think about the importance of living sustainably and in harmony with nature.

Our employees captured hundreds of breathtaking scenes from countries across the world - from lakes and waterfalls to snow-covered mountains and beautiful sunsets. Take a look at the photos voted in the top 20 by our employees globally!
