Ginza×CSR・CSV Vol.1 Shiseido
In recent years, we often hear the words, ‘corporate social responsibility,’ or CSR. Many companies in Ginza are also taking on initiatives to solve social challenges. In this corner, we present a series for introducing those Ginza-based CSR activities. The first part of this series looks at the Shiseido Life Quality Makeup initiative of Shiseido, a company that was founded in Ginza and celebrated its 140th anniversary last year. We spoke with Akiko Aoki who endeavors to improve the quality of life (QOL) of people with serious skin concerns.
