Membership in RSPO

In October 2019, Morinaga & Co., Ltd. joined the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) and took the first steps towards the use of RSPO-certified oils.

Use of FSC®-certified paper

We aim to promote the shift to FSC®-certified paper sourced from well-managed forests and other sources and expand the scope of its use in sequence.

Nature Exploration in the Iga Angel Forest

The Morinaga Group believes that children’s exploration in the nature will lead to the conservation of biodiversity by the next generation. Based on this belief, since 2007, we have been engaged in activities designed to help children understand the importance of the environmental conservation. These activities are undertaken in collaboration with an NPO specialized in environmental education in the company-owned Iga Angel Forest in Mie Prefecture.
