Upon announcing its Environmental Statement in 2009, the Kao Group adopted the "eco together" theme in the promotion of various environmental efforts. Kao "eco together" activities offer effective environmentally friendly methods applicable throughout the product lifecycle, while promoting cooperation in environmental activities throughout society.
As part of such activities, the Kao Group has been running the Kao International Environment Painting Contest for children since 2010. The contest encourages children to seriously consider eco behavior in everyday life, the global environment, and future of the Earth. At the same time, the viewpoints expressed in the paintings also help more people all around the world recognize the meaning of "eco together".
Informed by five years of award-winning works by children, Kao has created an eco textbook, "Thoughts about Tomorrow's Earth" (download link below).
