■ About the Sustainable Japan Award
Launched in 2019, the Japan Times Sustainable Japan Award (formerly the Satoyama & ESG Award) aims to recognize companies, organizations and individuals who have made progressive and sustainable efforts and to communicate their successes both domestically and internationally. From 2021, the selection of candidates includes an open call for applications (nomination not necessary), welcoming entrants from a wider range of fields.

■ Reason for Award
We established LION Eco Challenge 2050 as part of our long-term environmental objectives to realize a decarbonized and resource-circulating society while pursuing business growth. To achieve these goals, we are working together with companies, distributors, local governments and consumers to implement the use of recyclable plastics, our main sustainability effort, both on our own and in cooperation with other companies in the industry and with local governments through the Toothbrush Recycling Program. We believe that our efforts have been highly evaluated.
