In recent years, there are rising expectations of corporations engaging in management such as CSR, the environment, society, and governance (ESG) and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), taking into account environmental considerations and social contributions.
Halows upholds the first and foremost objective of “contributing to improvements in life and culture in local communities” set out in our Management Philosophy and makes it a company policy to work to make contributions to the environment and culture aside from the sale of groceries, our core business. We will strengthen our efforts toward creating a brilliant future with the cooperation of everyone in local communities who is engaged with Halows.
We have classified our CSR activities into three areas: “environmental preservation,” “safety and reliability” and “social contributions.”
We have installed energy-efficient equipment and fixtures and collect recyclables in front of stores for purposes including CO2 reduction to curb global warming and making effective use of limited resources.
We will introduce the safety and reliability concept into the sale of groceries, our core business, as well as to the equipment and fittings that customers and employees use. More specifically, we are working to strengthen the internal quality management system and in-house product development and increase the use of customer-friendly store equipment.
We ensure environmentally-friendly manufacturing activities thoroughly from the production of raw materials to the manufacturing of products.
We are committed to making contributions in various areas in local communities such as education, sports and dietary education. More specifically, we will contribute to the promotion of sports and the provision of dietary education to children in local communities, among other efforts, by making industry-academia collaborative efforts, holding sporting activities, etc.
