As we work toward the goal of becoming carbon zero (reducing CO2 emissions to net zero) by 2040, and becoming carbon negative by 2050, besides aiming to reduce CO2 emissions in our own business activities, we also aim to contribute toward realizing the decarbonized society by helping to reduce emissions in society as a whole, and through carbon fixation to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
Looking ahead to 2030, Kao is focused on the SDGs that have been agreed upon and adopted by the international community. As indicators for realizing a sustainable society, the SDGs set forth an integrated approach for improving the economy, society and the environment. Contributions by companies are considered extremely important to achieving the SDGs.
As indicated below, we are working to address the Kao Action topics set in the Kao ESG Commitments and Actions with the aim of achieving the SDGs.
