Basic Stance

With the intensifying severity of social issues such as climate change, all stakeholders are expected to address these issues in accordance with their own abilities and responsibility. The Morinaga Group is also making efforts to realize “health of environment” which will contribute to the sustainability of society and the environment throughout our entire value chain. In particular, we consider human rights and environmental issues in the production phase of agricultural raw materials, social and environmental issues that arise in the supply chain when procuring raw materials, challenges in stable procurement, and food loss and waste as our top priorities. As such, it is our plan to promote sustainable raw materials procurement, CSR supply chain management, and food loss and waste reduction.
