For everything from selecting materials to waste disposal,
Kao strives for eco-friendly Yoki-Monozukuri.
We are aiming for efficient energy usage and zero waste production in our plants.
We are reducing our CO2 emissions during delivery by downsizing packaging, as well as by using ship and rail transport.
We are developing new products while considering how we can reduce our environmental impact.
To reduce waste, we are introducing refillable and replaceable packaging.
