YKK Corporation has announced its environmental vision for 2050, defining its long-term direction that the entire group is taking in order to realise a higher level of environmental management. Towards a brighter future for nature and humanity, the vision is in response to the great need for environmental actions on an international scale.

YKK plans to implement the Environmental Vision at the individual company level by establishing environmental principles and numerical targets locally. The Environmental Vision will go into effect from April 2021. The issues identified in the Environmental Vision were gathered during multiple workshops conducted with employees as well as from the results of an employee survey conducted in YKK’s six global regions. In this way, the Environmental Vision reflects the ideas and opinions of the employees who will be the main driving force behind YKK Group’s future activities.

Since the YKK Group manufactures many products, including zippers and windows, various types of resources that constitute raw materials are essential. "To ensure that we will be able to stably continue supplying our products well into the future, we are acting to maximize effective utilisation of non-renewable resources, and also taking initiatives to recycle the waste materials generated throughout the entire life cycle of our products," YKK said in a press release.

Considering it as a responsibility to take actions to mitigate this problem, the YKK Group is striving to reduce the emissions of greenhouse gases, including CO2 and adapt to climate change. (RR)
