Unicharm Group’s Sustainability

Our basic approach and strategy

Unicharm's corporate philosophy is “NOLA & DOLA” (Necessity of Life with Activities & Dreams of Life with Activities). Our concept of NOLA & DOLA: Necessities of Life with Activities & Dreams of Life with Activities, contains our hope that “from newborn infants to the elderly, Unicharm aims to provide people with products that provide physical and psychological support through gentle care so that they may be free of their burdens to fulfill their dreams.” Our corporate social responsibility (CSR) is embodied by our commitment to achieve this aspiration through our business activities and to help resolve social issues in the process. In order to make this aspiration even more effective, Unicharm has established CSR Key Topics and Key Performance Index (KPI).

Unicharm Group's Value Creation


The Unicharm Ideals aim to realize our corporate philosophy and we have established the Beliefs and Pledges and Corporate Principles of Action along with the Five Great Pillars and Associate Principles of Action in order to implement the Unicharm Ideals.

ESG promotional structure

Unicharm has established a structure to implement and promote smooth ESG activities in order to meet our stakeholders' expectations. Our “ESG Committee” is a cross-organizational structure for the support of ESG, chaired by the Representative Director. The committee meets four times a year to discuss and share information about ESG-related activities, which in turn is utilized in management.
