2023 Medium-Term Environmental Plan

We established our 2023 Medium-Term Environmental Plan and are working to reach these targets.

2023 Medium-Term Environmental Plan

Based on our Environmental Vision, we established our 2020 Medium-Term Environmental Plan for the three-year planning period starting in April 2018, and the entire Group worked to reduce our environmental impact and resolve environmental issues.

In fiscal 2021, we established our 2023 Medium-Term Environmental Plan which focuses on the three pillars of products, business, and awareness. We are working toward these targets and aim to contributing to achieving SDGs.
