Basic Policies on Environmental Measures

Seeking New Harmony with the Environment

The Kao Group is engaged in corporate activities to fulfill our basic policies, as described below, based on our philosophy: "We have committed to contribute to social sustainability by giving through consideration to environmental conservation and human safety in every aspect of our operations, including product development, manufacture, distribution, sales, usage and waste disposal."

In addition, in June 2009, we announced the "Kao Environmental Statement," which manifests that we place ecology at the core of management, and our new corporate message, "Enriching lives, in harmony with nature." We continue to implement measures that further benefit the environment.
