The "Kao Way" is the foundation of Kao Group business activities through Yoki-Monozukuri from the consumer/customer's perspective.
- Mission: What we exist for
- Vision: Where we want to go
- Values: What we believe in
- Principles: How we behave
The "Kao Way" embodies our corporate philosophy, and is the foundation of the business activities of the Kao Group. As our cornerstone, The "Kao Way" provides consistency to Group activities from the formulation of mid- to long-term business plans to each business decision that we make every day. Accordingly, it acts as a guiding principle for all of our members, bringing together the growth of our company and that of our individual members. As such, it is an essential element in making the work we do more rewarding and instilling in us a sense of purpose.
Kao Group companies and members share the "Kao Way" not merely as a manual or set of rules but as a foundation from which we are able to determine both the value of our work and the concerns that we face.
