Our sustainability initiatives are focused on activities in four areas, namely “economy through food,” “active participation by our people,” “social contributions,” and “environmental preservation.
We have entered an era in which it is imperative that companies engage in business operations that are considerate of the environment and social contribution.
Halows has long upheld its management philosophy of “contributing to improvements in life and culture in local communities,” and in areas other than its main business of food sales, it has also had a policy of working to contribute to the environment and culture.
Working together with our stakeholders to address global environmental, social, and economic challenges proactively and continuously, we will contribute to the creation of happiness for people all over the world and further promote activities that are conscious of sustainability in our day-to-day operations.
To contribute to the improvement of the food culture of customers in the regions, we will work to supply safe and reliable products at low prices and in a stable manner.
To do this, we strive to introduce the concept of safety and reliability into our day-to-day operations and into the equipment and fittings that are used by customers and employees, strengthen our quality management systems, and enhance product development and customer-friendly store facilities.
The growth of each and every one of our directors and employees is of utmost importance for the continuation of sustainability initiatives. We are working to develop systems that will enable our people to actively participate in the workplace.
In response to issues related to society and human rights, we are committed to making contributions in various areas in local communities such as education, sports and dietary education.
We also believe that food has an important role to play in local communities.
To resolve the issues surrounding the global environment（CO2 emissions reduction, energy problems, effective use of resources, countermeasures against the destruction of nature, etc.), we are engaged in the collection of resources at stores and the effective re-use of resources.
