Full Transparency


Through product transparency Kao aims to build stronger trust with consumers. Sharing information that consumers need in a suitable and easily understood way is important if they are to make the right choices for themselves and lead rich lives.
We also actively address climate change and biodiversity, along with inquiries about various non-financial information from external stakeholders and international movement toward information disclosure. We disclose information in a timely manner through our reports, websites and various opportunities to engage with stakeholders.
