“Loved by citizens, working for citizens” means that we extensively contribute to the lives of people worldwide through manufacturing of products that are loved and trusted by citizens.

CITIZEN Group Environmental Initiatives

The Citizen Group has promoted a global environmental management toward the realization of a sustainable civil society. In December 2019, we amended the CITIZEN Group Environmental Policy, which is the basis for the Group's environmental initiatives. In addition, in April 2020, in order to commit to decarbonization by reducing CO2 emissions to substantively zero and to sustainable resource use, we amended the CITIZEN Group Environmental Vision 2050, formulated a new CITIZEN Group Resource Circulating Vision and reviewed the CITIZEN Group Environmental Goals 2030.Based on these visions and goals, we will continue to make further progress in our environmental initiatives.

Green Procurement

Information on Green Procurement

Citizen Electronics has recognized that the environmental protection issue is one of the most important agendas shared by the entire human race and as a result we promote 'Environment-Friendly Activities' and 'Supply of Environment-Friendly Products' when we conduct our corporate activities. In manufacturing environment-friendly products, the importance of upstream management in controlling environment-affecting substances (hazardous chemical substances) increases and we need to strengthen further green procurement.
