The building will also house Kao Eco-Lab Museum, located on the ground floor. Exhibition space in the museum will be used to demonstrate Kao’s updated ecological research, and to strengthen the company’s communication function with society.

Kao is also changing its corporate identity with a new logo and a new corporate message (“Enriching lives, in harmony with nature”) aiming at steering toward ecology-sensitive management.
