Sustainability Policy

Since our founding in 1980, FANCL Group has continued to grow as a company that provides solutions to social issues. Our founding philosophy of working to eliminate the ‘Negatives’ with a sense of justice, has been carried on through to the present day. In 2018, we developed the FANCL Group Sustainable Declaration: “Building a Bright Future Together” to express our desire to contribute to building a sustainable society in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Furthermore, based on our Medium-term Management Plan “FORWARD 2023,” –Conquer adversity and shape our future, we will redefine the key issues for the Group and promote specific initiatives in line with the key issue themes.

Building a Bright Future Together

Guided by our founding philosophy of “Eliminating the ‘Negatives’ with a
Sense of Justice,” FANCL is confronting key issues of concern that will
impact people’s future lives, including the global environment and society,
as well as working together with our stakeholders to engender hope.
We aim to contribute to the creation of a sustainable society that brings
happiness to people now and in the future.

UN Global Compact and SDGs

In April 2013, FANCL became a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact, and is committed to respecting the ten principles required of participating companies in their business activities. Furthermore, we formulated our Sustainable Declaration – Building a Bright Future Together – in June 2018, and are working to achieve a sustainable society in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set by the UN in September 2015.
