Management Organization

The ESG Promotion Committee manages and facilitates various initiatives and receives reports on progress toward goals. For projects that require specialized knowledge, we collaborate with external specialized institutions in areas including testing, auditing and management. The chairperson of the Board of Directors leads the ESG Promotion Committee, which meets monthly with the participation of inside directors, executive officers and managers of related departments. The Compliance and Risk Management Committee examines and discusses various environmental risks for reporting to the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors discuss on the results of various initiatives, policies, progress towards goals, and activities at least twice a year.

Develop Products that Care for the Environment

MUJI was founded in 1980 based on the in-house development experience of Seiyu, Ltd. to provide good products at lower prices with the slogan of "Lower priced for a reason." The basis of our product development is to create products that are truly fundamental to day-to-day life without any unnecessary complexity. To achieve this, we take a second look at often neglected materials, streamline the production process, and simplify packaging to create simple, beautiful products that people will cherish for years.

Since the birth of MUJI, we have further developed this concept and proposed the idea of realizing a simple, pleasant life for people around the world by providing MUJI products and services designed with both consumers and producers in mind. We make three pledges in corporate management as a company that realizes a simple, pleasant life. Furthermore, we set and implement three priorities in product development and three standards in manufacturing, which are the basis of business management.

Through these initiatives, we are promoting climate change measures from the viewpoint of quality and function of products and CO2 emissions with consideration of the LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) for each material from the product development stage.
