Upholding its founding spirit of “benefiting society through its business activities,” Lion, in addition to pursuing economic development, has long considered its impact on the environment and society and worked to address related issues through its business activities.
At present, we are tackling key management issues to reduce risks and achieve our management vision for 2030 of “Becoming an advanced daily healthcare company.” At the same time, we are practicing management driven by our purpose, “Make a difference in everyday lives by redesigning habits: ReDesign.” Based on this purpose, the Lion Group will synergistically address its sustainability material issues and advance its three growth strategies in order to contribute to the realization of a sustainable society and achieve business growth.
What is Sustainability?
Lion focuses on sustainability for itself and for the world in terms of environmental, social, and economic factors. A sustainable company is one that considers not only economic development, but also social and environmental impacts as it implements ongoing business activities based on long-term strategy.
Contributing to the Achievement of the SDGs
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of common goals for 2030 established by the United Nations (UN) aimed at the realization of a sustainable world.
The Lion Group’s contribution will mainly be to the realization of SDG 3, “Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages,” through its products and services. At the same time, by pursuing initiatives aimed at realizing the Vision 2030 long-term strategic framework, Lion will contribute to the creation of a sustainable world, the ultimate goal of the SDGs.
Sustainability Management (Implementation Framework)
In order to promote sustainable management, until 2020 we held the Sustainability Promotion Meeting, comprising all executive directors, including the president, and related departments. In 2021, we revised this implementation system and established the Sustainability Promotion Council, which meets twice a year.
We have established three subcommittees under the council, each headed by an executive officer, positioning top management at the forefront of promoting Sustainability Material Issues more than ever before. Decisions made by the Sustainability Promotion Council are reported to the Senior Executive Committee and, as necessary, presented to and discussed by the Executive Committee and the Board of Directors and before being reflected in the business activities of the business execution departments.
Lion’s Value Creation Model
Lion positions its purpose, “Make a difference in everyday lives by redesigning habits: ReDesign,” at the core of management. To achieve the management vision, “Becoming an advanced daily healthcare company,” we are leveraging the strength of our capital to synergistically reinforce initiatives to address the sustainability material issues and advance growth strategies under the Vision2030 long-term strategic framework. We will accelerate growth, primarily in four fields of value creation. By providing products and services unique to Lion that help redesign habits, we aim to generate social and economic value and invest in future growth, creating a cycle that will increase corporate value over the medium to long term.
