Supplier Engagement Leader by CDP
For the Second Consecutive Year
Kao Corporation has been recognized, for the second consecutive year, as a Supplier Engagement leader for its initiatives in reducing carbon emissions and tackling climate change across its supply chain by CDP, an international non-profit organization that drives companies and governments to reduce their greenhouse emissions.
Kao released the Kao Environmental Statement in 2009 and announced a 35% carbon emission reduction across the product lifecycle compared to that of 2005, as one of its 2020 medium-term plan goals. By setting climate change countermeasures as one of the main themes in its ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) activities, Kao is promoting the activities for enrichment of people's daily life with zero environmental impact.
