PHC Holdings recognizes that environmental initiatives represent one of our main business challenges. Therefore, we have established an Environmental Policy that promotes environmentally-friendly, sustainable and socially-responsible activities with the aim of balancing sound business and environmental practices.
Environmental initiatives constitute a fundamental pillar of our core mission of contributing to the well-being of society by creating new value for all people who wish to achieve better health and lead more active lives. Based on our renewed commitment to building credibility as a corporate citizen that believes in excellence across all that we do, we recognize that, as our company and its presence in society grows, environmental initiatives will be an ever more important responsibility. Therefore, we have pledged to make effective and efficient use of all energy and other resources across all our businesses, products and services, and to promote sound and sustainable environmental management. This policy has been accepted by all entities within our organization and by our affiliated companies, both in Japan and overseas.
