Initiatives Under Vision2030
To realize Vision2030, we are further improving efficiency in existing businesses and speeding up development while accelerating initiatives in the newly designated four fields of value creation.
1. Leveraging Digital Technologies to Generate Innovation
To speed up research and development, we are leveraging digital technologies to increase development efficiency. For example, we are automating experiment processes using robots and applying AI to formula development. In addition, we are advancing new value proposals by applying the latest data science insights. Our research laboratories are constantly producing new ideas for a wide range of technologies and services that utilize our proprietary oral health data.
2. Reinforcing Initiatives in Cleanliness and Hygiene through Open Innovation
To offer new value in the field of hygiene—which has seen society’s needs grow due to the COVID-19 pandemic—we are working to catch up to needs in areas involving cutting-edge technologies and advancing cooperation with outside partners.
Hygiene is a field in which we can offer value through not only hand washing, but diverse aspects of daily living, such as clothing care and oral care. Lion has wide-ranging business domains related to daily living habits; leveraging this strength, we will reinforce collaboration internally and externally to rapidly provide unique and timely products, services and information that help customers form better hygiene habits.
