YKK Environmental vision 2050 - Towards a brighter future for nature and humanity

December 18, 2019

YKK Corporation has announced its new YKK Group Environmental Vision 2050, “Towards a brighter future for nature and humanity,” in response to the great need for environmental actions on a global scale. The Environmental Vision defines the long-term direction for environmental initiatives that the entire YKK Group must take in order to realize a higher level of environmental management. 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. The Environmental Vision will go into effect in April 2021. YKK plans to implement the Environmental Vision at the individual company level by establishing environmental principles and numerical targets locally.
