Resources and cultivated land


We create products from natural resources and provide valuable products to our customers.
In recent years, climate change and other factors have threatened the growth of grains, which are raw materials, and as a result, the risk of major fluctuations in raw material prices has increased more than ever. Furthermore, it is the responsibility of food manufacturers to contribute to the sustainable use of the earth's resources, including water resources. At the same time, proactively addressing issues such as quality and human rights in the supply chain is essential for the continued use of our precious raw materials and other resources.
In order to ensure Sustainable recourse use into the future, J-OIL MILLS will continue to work to reduce water resources, and will also create an "Environmental Policy" and a newly formulated "Human Rights Policy" based on related laws and regulations. ", we have formulated sustainability-related policies such as "Sustainable Procurement Policy and Standards", " Palm oil procurement policy", and " soybean Procurement Policy". Based on each policy, we will work with our suppliers (business partners) to promote sustainable procurement activities that adapt to the demands of the times.


  • Conservation of water resources

    Water is used in all aspects of the supply chain, including the cultivation of raw materials and manufacturing processes, and is an important resource indispensable to our business activities. Our factories use a lot of water as steam and cooling medium. Our company has set a goal of reducing municipal and industrial water usage by 5% in 2024 compared to 2019, and by 10% in 2030, and is working to reduce water intake by promoting efficient water use and reuse. We are striving to reduce this. Water usage at all domestic factories in fiscal 2022 was 4.19 million tons, a 14% reduction compared to 2019.
    In addition, starting in fiscal 2021, Environment Working Group under Sustainability Committee, chaired by a Member of the Board, will begin considering and analyzing water risks at domestic bases, with the CEO as the chief Member of the Board. Going forward, we will continue to understand water risks that are important for food companies, strive to eliminate them, and take further initiatives regarding water resources for environmental conservation and business continuity.
