Promoting consumer-oriented management, the Consumer Affairs Agency works with businesses and consumer groups to encourage companies to release a voluntary declaration of consumer-orientation and follow-up activities.
To receive the commendation for best practice, companies are evaluated on if they have publicly made a voluntary declaration of consumer-orientation and demonstrated outstanding follow-up activities accordingly.
Since its founding, the Kao Group has conducted consumer-oriented activities — and through Yoki-Monozukuri, its strong commitment to manufacturing — from the consumer's perspective considers its mission to deliver enriched lives with delight and satisfaction to people around the world and contribute to the sustainability of society.
Amid major changes to conditions in society and the natural environment, Kao will continue to conduct and build on its efforts at consumer-oriented management based on a foundation of ESG management.
