Events and Websites

Through participation in environmental exhibitions and other channels, Lion seeks to communicate to consumers ways they can be more environmentally friendly both in the course of daily life and through comfortable, clean living using Lion products. Furthermore, we implement educational programs for the next generation to foster environmentally friendly habits.

Our booth exhibited at EcoPro 2021 is re-enacted with 360 ° images. Users can learn about our various activities to realize a resource-recycling society through employee explanation and links to the website.

Building Relationships with Communities and External Organizations

Lion participates in the activities of the Japan Chemical Industry Association Responsible Care (RC) Committee, which aims for constant improvement in the environmental performance and safety of chemical substances throughout their life cycles, from development through disposal.

Responsible Care Activities at the Osaka and Chiba Plants

As a member company of the Japan Chemical Industry Association RC Committee, Lion proactively engages in dialogue with local communities. Each plant provides opportunities for dialogue suited to the characteristics of its local community to promote communication with community members.

In February 2020, Lion was a collaborator and participant in the 12th annual Sakai/Northern Izumi responsible care community dialogue meeting held at the Osaka Works of Mitsui Chemicals, Inc., in Takaishi City, Osaka. The meeting drew 65 participants, including representatives of the local and national government and companies to discuss disaster response and ongoing initiatives.

In February 2021, the 13th annual Chiba responsible care community dialogue meeting was held via written communication in the form of pamphlets in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Lion’s Chiba Plant took part in organizing the meeting from the planning stages. Pamphlets on safety measures and environmental activities being undertaken by companies in the area were mailed to neighborhood associations, government bodies, NPOs and other recipients along with surveys in order to collect feedback and opinions. The participants will utilize the views gleaned from these surveys in their activities going forward.

In May 2017, the Chiba Plant received the 11th Responsible Care Award from the Japan Chemical Industry Association for its initiatives to protect the aquatic environment and contribute to the local community. Since the start of its operations, the Chiba Plant has continuously implemented activities to protect the aquatic environment from water-related risks. The plant’s efforts to purify industrial water for various applications, recycle wastewater used in industrial processes and manage wastewater according to standards stricter than those required by law have led to reductions in water usage and discharge volumes and the conservation of water quality. The award also praised the plant for providing education about the importance of water through initiatives with local children and plant tours.
