Kao Receives the JLCA Award Incentive award

Since releasing the Kao Environmental Statement in 2009, Kao's Group-wide environmental initiatives have earned recognition, culminating in receiving the 14th JLCA Award Incentive award.

With backing from the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, the Life Cycle Assessment Society of Japan (JLCA) has awarded this commendation since fiscal 2004 for the purpose of "supporting companies, organizations, and researchers that work to reduce environmental impacts from the product lifecycle."

The JLCA has given Kao this award in recognition of its introduction of an LCA evaluation system for individual products, adding "eco together" logos to products meeting its standards for environmental friendliness, and for its communications activities with stakeholders including China to raise awareness for eco-lifestyle practices that reduce environmental impacts during product use.

Kao remains committed to pursuing environmental impact reductions in the product lifecycle and Yoki-Monozukuri* product development and manufacturing with environmental considerations.

  • * We define Yoki-Monozukuri as "a strong commitment by all members to provide products and brands of excellent value for consumer satisfaction."
