Lion has long taken the lead in addressing problems in the aquatic environment, such as stream foaming and eutrophication linked to the use of detergents, considering biodiversity at each stage from raw material procurement to disposal by consumers. To continue benefiting from the value provided by biodiversity into the future, we must work with local communities to protect biodiversity and utilize such value in a sustainable, non-depleting way. Furthermore, it is important that we contribute to the realization of a society in harmony with nature by encouraging changes in consumer lifestyles through biodiversity-friendly products.
To this end, Lion will contribute to the development of a sustainable society through its businesses by determining which natural resources are used in business activities and the impacts on biodiversity throughout the value chain. Based on this information, Lion will implement biodiversity conservation activities that help reduce risk and expand opportunities. Also, by having every employee participate in biodiversity conservation activities as part of our environmental education efforts, we are spreading awareness of this important issue throughout our operating sites.
