Participation in External Initiatives

United Nations Global Compact

To enhance our sustainability activities, we became a participant in the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) in April 2018. UNGC is a voluntary initiative in which corporates and collectives act as good members of the society and participate in the creation of a global framework for achieving sustainable growth by demonstrating responsibility and creative leadership. We support 10 principles advocated by UNGC in four fields in human rights, labor, the environment and anti-corruption, and will continue to make efforts to realize them, thereby contributing to the sustainable development of society.

The Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact

Human rights Principle 1 Businesses should support and respect the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights
Principle 2 Make sure that they are not complicit in human rights abuses
Labour Principle 3 Businesses should uphold the freedom of association and the effective recognition of the right to collective bargaining
Principle 4 The elimination of all forms of forced and compulsory labour
Principle 5 The effective abolition of child labour
Principle 6 The elimination of discrimination in respect of employment and occupation
Environment Principle 7 Businesses should support a precautionary approach to environmental challenges
Principle 8 Undertake initiatives to promote greater environmental responsibility
Principle 9 Encourage the development and diffusion of environmentally friendly technologies
Anti-Corruption Principle 10 Businesses should work against corruption in all its forms, including extortion and bribery

Recommendations of Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD)

TCFD is a private-sector task force established by the Financial Stability Board (FSB) whose recommendations call for financial institutions, corporates and governments to disclose the impacts of climate-related business risks and opportunities on finance in their financial reports.

We announced support for TCFD Recommendations in 2020.


Responsible Care Global Charter

Responsible Care Global Charter

Responsible Care (RC) activities aim to secure environment, health and safety performance on voluntary basis throughout the entire process, from the development of chemical substances to manufacture, distribution, use, final consumption and disposal / recycling. These activities also serve as a form of communication with society through the announcement of their results.

We have demonstrated that we are enhancing our efforts in RC activities through international cooperation by agreeing to and signing the Responsible Care Global Charter, which was revised in 2014, established by the International Council of Chemical Association, an organization that addresses issues shared by the global chemical industry.


Japan Chemical Industry Association (JCIA)

Responsible Care

We have been a member of the Japan Responsible Care Council (JRCC) since its establishment in 1995 by JCIA.

As a member of JCIA, we also participate in the "Carbon Neutral Action Plan" of the Japan Business Federation (Keidanren).

  • Became part of the Japan Chemical Industry Association in April 2012 to become the Responsible Care Committee, one of the association's business committees.

METI's “GX League”

We expressed its support for the GX (Green Transformations) League Basic Concept, which was announced by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) in February 2022, and have been participating in the GX League since April 2023.

The GX League is designed to bring together companies actively engaged in GX to discuss the transformation of the entire economic and social system and practice initiatives to create new markets, together with players in government, academia, and finance that are tackling challenges to achieve GX.
