Project Overview

KAO has set a goal to improve the water usage efficiency in the entire Group by 40% by 2020. Due to high water supply risk in the future, the plant has continued to reduce risks that may hinder business growth by setting a goal higher than the above and implementing activities to improve water usage efficiency. As part of such efforts, the plant is now using rainwater.
