SDGs

Kawanoe Zoki supports the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and contributes to the realization of a sustainable society through the promotion of environmentally friendly and people-friendly Monozukuri process.

By continuing to work on the four values “KAWANOE’s value” among the four pillars of our mid-term management plan “KAWANOE Value for the 80th”, we will strive more proactively to overcome social and environmental issues and steadily implement the following activities to contribute to the achievement of the SDGs goals.

100 years’ Value

Taking the opportunity of celebrating the 80th anniversary in 2024, we will go back to the grass roots, reconsider the value of KAWANOE that we have together, and question the significance of our existence while deeply considering about our mission. By redefining and providing the value of KAWANOE that is really needed by society and customers, we will continue to make a solid step toward a 100-year-old enterprise rooted in the community.
