Environmental Initiatives

The business activities of the Kewpie Group are viable in virtue of the ample bounties of nature, which include raw materials. We pay due consideration to the impact on the environment that our business activities have. We believe it is our mission to preserve the environment as it has existed until now for a long time to come, and pass this on to the next generation.
At the Kewpie Group, we have identified “Effective use and recycling of resources,” and “Deal with climate change” as environmental material issues for sustainability, and we have been addressing these issues across the whole Group.
Including the above, for crucial environmental issues, we will report all of our environmental activities based on the five areas of “Effective Use of Resources,” “Initiatives on Global Warming,” “Conservation of Biodiversity,” “Sustainable Use of Water,” and “Environmentally Friendly Products.”
