Sustainability Policy

Sustainability Concept

The word "Activate" incorporates two concepts that symbolize NICCA.
The first relates to the surface active agents that the Group manufactures and sells. We hope to use this technology to enrich people's lives and society, and to create a bright future.

The second relates to the meanings of "activate" and "brighten." We want to be an activating presence that makes everyone's day-to-day life and their entire life shine brightly with energy and vitality.

We will contribute to the realization of a sustainable society by continuing to work to achieve this vision.

Materiality (Key issues)

The promotion of sustainable management was established as a company-wide basic strategy in the Group's Medium-term Business Plan, INNOVATION 25. As a company that contributes to society, our aim is to proactively promote such efforts at an even higher level. One example of such a measure is the addition of a new management target of a 30% reduction (compared to 2018) in net CO2 emissions for the entire Group by 2030.
