Yoki-Monozukuri to Support a Sustainable Society

Each Kao product has a life cycle, passing through the manufacturing, distribution, and sales phases before being used in the home and finally discarded. Kao works to develop innovative technologies to minimize the environmental impact of these products across their entire life cycle by integrating technical expertise in a number of different fields, including chemistry, biology, chemical engineering, and materials science. We also apply the latest advances in areas like biotechnology, nanotechnology, and materials analysis to develop high-performance, renewable, plant-based materials; green production technology; and easy-to-use refillable containers. By developing ever more environmentally friendly products based on the cumulative results of such research, we support a sustainable society through Yoki-Monozukuri.
