Lion Corporation (President: Masazumi Kikukawa) has been recognized as a supplier engagement leader for a fourth consecutive year under the Supplier Engagement Rating Program of the CDP an international NPO that offers a system for environment-related information disclosure.


Lion positions “promoting environmental initiatives for a sustainable planet” as a top priority material issue, and the LION Eco Challenge 2050 long-term environmental management objectives formulated in June 2019 are at the center of its strategy. Working in cooperation with stakeholders through the provision of environmentally friendly products, joint logistics and other initiatives, Lion proactively works to decrease the environmental impact of its products throughout their life cycles.

As part of international efforts aimed at reducing overall greenhouse gas emissions from supply chains, the CDP Supplier Engagement Rating (SER) is an indicator for evaluating businesses in terms of their initiatives aimed at encouraging their supply chain constituents to address climate change issues. To this end, the program grants ratings based primarily on businesses’ responses to CDP climate change questionnaire items covering four fields: governance, targets, value chain (scope 3) emissions and supplier engagement strategies. Placing in the top 8% in the supplier engagement strategy field among the companies evaluated, Lion was selected as a supplier engagement leader. 

The Lion Group implements management driven by its purpose, “Make a difference in everyday lives by redesigning habits: ReDesign.” We regard sustainability as a material issue for achieving our management vision, “Becoming an advanced daily healthcare company.” Going forward, we will continue to contribute to the realization of a decarbonized, resource-circulating society by promoting the formation of environmentally friendly habits together with consumers.
