Kyo-sei Life Vision 2030 For a Diverse, Inclusive, and Sustainable World

At Unicharm, we are committed to helping solve environmental
and social issues as we work together to realize a cohesive society.
With that in mind, we have put forward Unicharm Group’s mid-to-long term environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) goals in a document called “Kyo-sei Life Vision 2030 ― For a Diverse, Inclusive, and Sustainable World.”
In this declaration, we bring our vision for 2030 into sharper focus,
explicating the key initiatives and targets that we believe will help us achieve our goals.
Through the implementation of “Kyo-sei Life Vision 2030,”
we are confident that we can satisfy the needs of consumers and communities,
while continuing to grow our business.

Standing quietly by everyone, supporting each moment of their life…
That is what Unicharm aspires to.
The cohesive society we hope to achieve is one where we all help one another and where each individual can pursue their own dreams.

Positioning of
“Kyo-sei Life Vision 2030”

At Unicharm, we believe that our fundamental raison d’être, that is, our “Purpose”, is to help achieve the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Because this “Purpose” is so basic to our essence as a company, we think that it is important that all of our employees understand, agree, and empathize with it. To better delineate the substance of that “Purpose”, and to further its accomplishment, we have broken it down into three key components: “Mission,” “Vision,” and “Value.”
“Mission” clarifies what we want to do. More specifically, our mission is to realize a cohesive society, a society that must inherently be diverse, inclusive, and sustainable.
In this society, personal freedom will harmonize with social altruism, enabling people to be true to themselves and live lives of their own choosing, while at the same time helping others to achieve a better life.
Where “Purpose” is the goal, “Vision” is the means. “Vision” elucidates how we can realize a cohesive society. In practical terms, it is the application of our corporate philosophy, which we like to call “NOLA & DOLA” (Necessity of Life with Activities & Dreams of Live with Activities).
Through “NOLA,” we hope to provide powerful, yet discreet and unobtrusive support for the minds and bodies of our users, relieving them of some of the burdens of their lives and enabling them to better focus their efforts on making their dreams come true.
“Value” is the sense of duty and social responsibility that underlies our “Mission” and powers our “Vision,” bringing it all together to serve the common “Purpose.” All Unicharm employees around the world are now pushing forward our standardized management model called “Management with Resonance.”
To understand and promote our “Purpose”, and to clarify how our “Mission,” “Vision,” and “Value” work together to push forward that “Purpose,” this document explains in detail the world we have envisioned in 2030 and describes how we hope to get there, highlighting the key initiatives and targets that we believe will make “Kyo-sei Life Vision 2030” a reality. We are committed to helping solve environmental and social issues, while providing new value to consumers and communities and assuring steady business growth.

The Future We Envision

A society in which everyone can maximize individual potential and live life to its fullest.
A society in which we comfortably coexist, helping each other while respecting mutual independence.
Unicharm continually considers every moment of life.
From birth to adulthood, and all the years in between.
From this generation to the next, and many years into the future.
We endeavor to realize a diverse, inclusive and sustainable world,
protecting and supporting life for people and society through “kindness” in various forms.
Baby care that supports and comforts both infant and family.
Nursing care that helps people live a full life at any age.
Environments that ensure our partner animals (pets) a warm welcome by the family and neighborhood. Feminine care that helps lift spirits during the monthly cycle.
Good hygiene that helps enhance and expand pleasant interactions for everyone.
This is the “kindness” we at Unicharm have always valued.As we create and extend such kindness,
we must emphasize not only the well-being of individuals, but also the well-being of society and our planet as a whole.
When we picture the manufacturing that sustains local economies, we imagine the faces of people at work and their families.When we consider the dynamic switch to renewable energy, we visualize a future with reduced global warming.At Unicharm, we strive for all of our business activities to reflect kindness, thereby contributing to a diverse, inclusive and sustainable world for our future.Unicharm continues to conduct business while championing the freedom of individuals to pursue their own way of life, based on our corporate philosophy of “NOLA & DOLA.”*In the decade to come, we at Unicharm will continue to affirm this ideal, providing kindness and support at every moment, throughout every lifetime.

“NOLA & DOLA”: Necessity of Life with Activities & Dreams of Life with ActivitiesOur corporate philosophy: From Newborn infants to the elderly, Unicharm aims to provide people with products that offer physical and psychological support through gentle care so that they may be free of their burdens to fulfill their dreams.

With the year 2050 set as the target date for bringing such a society into being, we have developed some specific ideas about what that the future could look like and where we as a company want to be at that time.
