For the realization of a sustainable society, we ensure the conservation of biodiversity and the protection of ecosystems.
In accordance with the Morinaga Group Procurement Policy, we are committed to the conservation of biodiversity and engaged in our procurement activities focusing on the raw materials that are considerate of the global environment.
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.
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.
We have started using Cocoa Horizons-certified raw materials in certain products.
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.
