In preparation for the “Sustainability Report 2021”

This report has been prepared as Unicharm’s corporate sustainability which is embodied by our corporate philosophy, “NOLA & DOLA*”. Here, we will take a closer look at how we are working to practice “NOLA & DOLA” through our businesses. This year, we will issue a report on the four key initiative themes we revealed in October 2020 as part of “Kyo-sei Life Vision 2030” and, at the same time, strive to further improve the disclosure in the report from the view-point of ESG information disclosure with regard to our mindset and initiatives toward sustainability.

As for our global report, we refer to the UN Global Compact, GRI Guidelines and other sources throughout the whole report based on global societal demands. We will continue to accommodate the requests of our stakeholders to the greatest extent possible, therefore, we ask that you go through our “Integrated Report 2021” as well and provide whatever frank opinions and comments you may have.
