[Each Employee Leading the Way to a Sustainable Society]
Following the management philosophy on which the company was founded, Milbon has developed a business focused on the beauty market. We believe that achieving sustainability in the beauty industry will lead to the realization of a sustainable society. Each and every employee, including members of our executive team, engages in these efforts by envisioning and taking action toward a sustainable society.
Milbon is committed to realizing a sustainable society by creating a beauty industry that offers a richness of beauty and soul through hair stylists.
Milbon cannot develop a sustainable beauty industry alone. In February 2020, we held a sustainability policy presentation for the distributors and salons we work with to share our activities and to create a framework for realizing an industry-wide partnership.President Sato giving a presentation on Milbon’s efforts to achieve the SDGs
As a manufacturer that uses palm oil, in 2019, Milbon became a member of Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), an organization that promotes the sustainable use of palm oil.
Milbon participates in “Kids Helping Kids,” an initiative led by the Kids Earth Fund (KEF). This NPO supports children who suffer from the effects of war, poverty, and environmental contamination. As part of this initiative, we launched products presented in special packaging that used these children’s art for a limited time.
In May 2020, Milbon joined the UN Global Compact (UNGC). The UNGC is a voluntary initiative to encourage businesses worldwide to adopt sustainable and socially responsible policies.
Milbon actively supports the employment of people with disabilities to realize a society in which a diverse workforce can thrive.
Since 2005, we have been working with Iga Koiku-kai, a social welfare corporation, to offer people with disabilities an offsite work program at our Yumegaoka Plant in Mie Prefecture. As of May 2020, we have around 30 people working on our production lines through the program.
