Kao has been chosen every year since the Institute began compiling its list in 2007, making Kao the only Japanese company with this honor.
Kao Corp. was named one of the Corporate Knights’ Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World (Global 100) for the second year in a row
TOKYO/BEIJING, Aug 2 (Reuters) - Like many urban Chinese professionals with young children, Shenzhen-based fintech executive Jacob Cao is a fan of Japanese diaper brands including Kao Corp's Merries. While he knows some Merries are made in China, with little difference in quality compared with higher-priced versions from Japan, he prefers the latter. It has served Kao well, propelling it to the No.2 spot in the world's biggest diaper market despite a late entry in 2009.
Kao Corporation (4452.T), a Japan-based Group whose brand portfolio includes Bioré, Goldwell, Jergens, John Frieda and Molton Brown, announced a new global ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) strategy, the Kirei Lifestyle Plan, to support consumer lifestyle changes. In the face of global challenges like climate change, aging societies, resource scarcity and the management of materials such as plastics, consumers around the world have expressed growing desire for a gentler and more sustainable way of living, which Kao has named the Kirei Lifestyle. The Japanese word ‘kirei’ describes something that is clean, well-ordered and beautiful, all at the same time.
