The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are international goals for a sustainable and better world by the year 2030.
The SDGs were set as new global goals to replace the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which were formulated in 2001 and reached their achievement deadline in 2015.
Consisting of 17 goals and 169 targets (concrete goals), the SDGs pledge to “leave no one behind” in the world.
The SDGs are universal, not just for developing countries but for advanced nations as well. Japan, and our company as well, are actively working towards them.


We are a company that primarily manufactures non-durable consumer goods, such as tea bags filters and coffee drip filters, and we have been working on making products that do not place a burden on the environment.
We believe that our product manufacturing philosophy will lead to the SDGs efforts of aiming for a more sustainable world, as we actively promote it.


Efforts 01

Promotion of Plant-Derived Filters

Responsible consumption, production
Life below water
Life on land

By promoting plant-derived compostable beverage filters, we will reduce the amount of petroleum used as a raw material for tea and coffee bags, and the carbon dioxide generated during their incineration. Additionally, since they are disintegrated completely at the industrial compost facility, this also contributes to solving the waste problem.
