Preserving the Water Environment
Efforts to reduce water consumption
The Kikkoman Group has been striving to reduce water consumption of the manufacturing divisions (factories and plants) by measuring the water consumption, managing the water consumption and water consumption per unit of production, reviewing the manufacturing process and introducing effective measures for such reduction.
Efforts to preserve the water environment
Being strongly aware of the critical importance of preserving the water environment, the Kikkoman Group is keen on preserving the water environment around its manufacturing bases (factories and plants) by setting its own water quality standards (stricter than the legal ones) for the wastewater generated in manufacturing activities, including Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD), reviewing the manufacturing process and machineries and implementing effective measures.
The Kikkoman Group will continuously work toward achieving higher objectives in order to thoroughly perform and improve wastewater management.
