Reduce the environmental impact of apparel product tags

Mizuno is working to reduce environmental impact in every aspect. As a part of them, we are also applying these efforts to the product tags used to indicate the product’s functions and other product information.

Mizuno will start using mixed paper that contains offcuts generated during the cutting of the apparel fabric, for the product tags of new apparel introduced in the 2023 spring/summer season for the Japanese market. Through this initiative, we aim to reduce wastage of apparel material and minimize the use of paper resources. We are also working on reducing the use of product tags itself by simplifying, consolidating and digitalizing tags, with a view to reducing the number of product tags by approximately 4 million pieces per year.
Through these efforts, we expect to achieve CO2 emissions reduction of approximately 11.8 tons per year.

Mizuno aims to realize carbon neutrality by 2050. To that end, we are promoting activities to review conventional resource consumption.
