In 2019, the Lion Group established the LION Eco Challenge 2050, a set of long-term environmental objectives, with the goal of promoting business activities that help to address global problems, such as those identified in the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In 2022, many countries, including Japan, began raising their environment- and sustainability-related targets. We have also revised our objectives as we work to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. Aiming to realize a decarbonized, resource-circulating society, we will promote environmentally friendly habits with consumers to continuously provide planet-friendly lifestyles that make more sustainable living easy.

Top Environmental Audits

Lion’s top management has been carrying out environmental audits of domestic Group production sites since 1999. Since 2009, we have formulated audit plans based on the characteristics of each plant and carried out regular audits every three years. In 2019, the director responsible for the Sustainability Promotion Department (Kenjiro Kobayashi) carried out top environmental audits of the Chiba Plant, Osaka Plant and Akashi Plant. Top environmental audits scheduled for 2020 were postponed to the second half of 2021 due to the COVID- pandemic. In 2021, we carried out top environmental audits of the Lion Specialty Chemicals Co., Ltd. Ono Production Site and the Lion Chemical Co., Ltd. Fine Chemical Production Site in a hybrid format combining in-person and online auditing.

Internal Environmental Audits

Trained internal environmental auditors regularly conduct internal environmental audits to check compliance with the requirements of ISO 14001. The relevant departments then take responsibility for implementing improvements regarding any issues thus identified. In addition, the general managers of offices and plants conduct management reviews to confirm that organizational management systems are constantly being improved to be more apt, fair and effective.

Legal Compliance

Lion ensures compliance with environmental laws and regulations. In addition, we carry out management based on proprietary management standards.

Proper Waste Disposal

For waste disposal, a waste disposal officer at each operating site commissions waste disposal contractors based on contractor selection standards laid out in Lion’s waste management regulations. We also perform regular on-site inspections of waste disposal contractors’ facilities to determine whether we should continue to commission them.
