Efforts to reduce environmental impact

As businesses have been increasingly required to accurately identify their corporate environmental load in recent years, the collaboration with group businesses, overseas businesses, and business partners is becoming more and more important. Since 2018, our data collection scope has been extended and optimized to cover the KOSÉ Group as a whole. We will continue to communicate each other to further extend the data collection scope. Also, we are collecting and integrating the environmental data from the Hsinchu factory of Taiwan KOSÉ.
Data shows decrease in KOSÉ Group’s CO2 emission, water consumption from the year before, highlighting the success of our environmental load reduction initiatives. We continue to accelerate our commitment to decrease the environmental load by carefully monitoring the CO2 emission, water usage, and waste amount as the basic criteria.
