We have targeted social issues listed in the SDGs and other global standards, such as the labor shortage and Japan's aging society, from the perspective of how we can contribute to them by addressing those issues through our value chain and business model. These are reviewed and evaluated by the project team, and each issue is classified into one of three categories: 1. Priority issues to proactively address; 2. Issues needing stronger action; and 3. Issues to continue addressing as before. In deliberations of the CSR Committee, we identified "Priority issues to proactively address" as critical for Creating Shared Value, CSV.
In 2015, Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with a set of 17 goals and 169 associated targets, were adopted at the United Nations' Sustainable Development Summit.
Duskin Group examined these goals and targets and determined the relevance of the SDGs with our businesses across the value chain. The group made a commitment to contribute to sustainable development of society through our business activities and to achieve the goals of the universal Agenda for Sustainable Development by 2030.
