The surface of the earth is mostly covered in water, but in actuality only 0.01% of that water can be used for the livelihood of people.* As a supplier of bathroom and kitchen plumbing products, we believe we have the duty to respond to the issue of depletion of water resources, as it significantly affects the daily lives of everyone. Accordingly, we continue to promote the reduction of water consumption during product use by developing water-efficient and comfortable products and distributing them on a global scale.
Our goal is to achieve 1.7 billion cubic meter of water consumption reduction (reduction of water stress) during product use by 2030.
