Highlight of Water Conservation & Environmental Sustainability


The 2015 Paris Agreement seeks to keep the rise in global average temperature well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels, and aims to limit that rise to 1.5°C. To achieve this, the world must reduce CO2 and other greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050.

In addition, an estimated 800 million people around the world today do not have access to safe drinking water. By 2050, over 40% of the world’s population won’t have access to necessary water supply due to the depletion of water resources.

Furthermore, global resource consumption is expected to more than double by 2050. To help change this situation, the world is gradually shifting from a one-way economy, which mines resources, makes products in large quantities, and eventually discards them, to a circular economy that closes resource loops.

Our Approach & Strategy

Modern lifestyles rely on large amounts of energy and resources. LIXIL, which seeks to contribute to improving the comfort and lifestyles of people around the world, plays a crucial role in conserving our global environment.

We strive to minimize environmental impacts both in our operations and through eco-conscious products and services that fully draw on advanced technologies and know-how related to life and living.

We are also committed to partnering with various stakeholders to foster an environmentally sustainable future together.

LIXIL Environmental Vision 2050

In FYE 2020, we formulated an environmental vision for LIXIL in the year 2050. Based on our Zero Carbon and Circular Living policy, by 2050, we aim to reduce CO2 emissions from our business processes, products, and services to net zero, and be a leader in the field of conserving water and limited resources for future generations.



We established LIXIL Plastic Action Statement, a group-wide commitment as part of its contribution to the realization of a circular economy in 2020. LIXIL’s commitment will minimize environmental issues as CO2 generated by manufacturing plastics and pollution caused by disposal of plastics after use.

Three Focus Areas to Achieve Our Vision

Three Focus Areas to Achieve Our Vision

Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation

The energy consumed by LIXIL products during their end-use phase accounts for over 90% of CO2 emissions of the entire lifecycle of LIXIL products and services, from raw material procurement through to product disposal. At LIXIL, we strive to reduce our environmental impact and aim to achieve net zero CO2 emissions by 2050 by offering eco-conscious products and services.

Water Sustainability

As a leading company in the water-related product industry, providing products such as toilets, kitchen systems, prefabricated bathrooms, and faucets, LIXIL strives to help achieve global water sustainability so that people can get the most out of the water they use.

Circular Economy

LIXIL uses a variety of resources, including metals, timber, resin, and ceramics. In order to use limited resources more sustainably, we promote circular manufacturing practices that consider the entire product lifecycle, from raw material procurement through to manufacturing, product use, and disposal.

Targets for Realizing the Vision

LIXIL has set and is now implementing medium-term environmental targets to be achieved by FYE 2021. Our medium-term plans going forward will be aligned with our Environmental Vision 2050.
