Preparation of Sustainability Report 2023

Sustainability Report 2023 was prepared to provide readers with information on Unicharm’s sustainability activities. At Unicharm, sustainability is about embodying “NOLA & DOLA,”* our corporate philosophy that is embraced by all of us in the course of our daily business activities. 

This year, in addition to reporting in line with the four areas established in our medium- to long-term ESG goals, Kyo-sei Life Vision 2030, we worked to further improve the contents of the report from the viewpoint of strengthening disclosure of ESGrelated information.

In preparing Sustainability Report 2023, we referred to the United Nations (UN) Global Compact, GRI Standards, and other sources, while incorporating information that reflects the global needs of society for sustainability reports.

Moving forward, we will take measures to continue to improve the quality of our sustainability report in order to cater to the needs of all of our stakeholders. We hope that you take the time to read this report in conjunction with Integrated Report 2023 and share your honest opinions.



The contents of Sustainability Report 2023 are based on the activities of the Unicharm Group (Unicharm Corporation and its domestic and overseas consolidated subsidiaries). However, the report also contains information on certain non-consolidated subsidiaries and affiliated companies.

In the report, “Unicharm” or “the Company” refers to “the Unicharm Group.” Company names are stated individually when there is a need to specify the scope.
