By 2030, 100% of our products will leave a full lifecycle environmental footprint that science says our natural world can safely absorb.
We will work toward the goal of reducing CO2 emissions to zero by 2040, and becoming carbon negative by 2050 to combat global warming. Kao aims to reduce emissions in our own business activities, as well as offer more sustainable products to our customers and consumers that reduce their carbon footprint. Through technologies such as carbon fixation, we will continue to take an active role in reducing global warming through innovation, and offer products and services that contribute to realizing a decarbonized society.
Besides reducing the usage of raw materials and plastic as far as is possible while ensuring that product users can use the products properly, we are also promoting the reuse and recycling of used packaging and unused materials and products, and working actively to promote a resource-circulating society.
