Supporting International Initiatives



The LIXIL Group’s corporate philosophy is to contribute to improving the comfort and lifestyles of people around the world. To bring our philosophy to life through our operational activities, we are driving a range of R&D and other initiatives to help resolve global sanitation and hygiene problems as well as other social and environmental issues.

To meet and exceed society’s expectations for the LIXIL Group, we must take active leadership as a comprehensive living and housing solutions company. We will continue to support the Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact, and provide our expertise in areas of sanitation to help create safe and healthy living spaces for all, as envisioned in the Sustainable Development Goals.

Commitment to the UN Global Compact

The LIXIL Group signed the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) in July 2013 in full support of the principles set out in the framework. The LIXIL Group will continue to implement the Ten Principles in the four fields of human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption.


The UNGC was proposed in 1999 by then Secretary-General Kofi Annan to encourage companies and other organizations to pursue voluntary actions to promote sustainable growth as good social citizens.

Sustainable Development Goals

The LIXIL Group reflects the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) approach in its corporate responsibility strategy and uses the goals as a major guideline when forming management decisions. The SDGs are a set of concrete action plans outlined in the Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development outcome-oriented document adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in September 2015, consisting of 17 global goals and 169 targets to be achieved for sustainable development. The LIXIL Group will continue to contribute to achieving the SDGs through its business operations.

Endorsing the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures

In March 2019, the LIXIL Group announced its support for the Task force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). In response to calls from the G20, the Financial Stability Board established the TCFD to determine and publish a framework for the disclosure of climate-related information. The LIXIL Group will continue to conduct proactive scenario analyses and promote wider and deeper disclosure.
