~What are Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)?~

About Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

The SDGs have set a 15-year time span in order to accomplish these various goals. In total 17 goals are set are to be achieved by the year 2030, which encompass various issues. Each of these 17 goals requires teamwork from around the world.
Known for their “leave no one behind” mindset, the SDGs stand for “sustainable development goals.”
These 17 Sustainable Development Goals were unanimously adopted by 193 countries during the United Nations General Assembly in 2015.

As a World Movement

In a major milestone for the SDG project, the United Nations Headquarters in New York brought together over 150 world leaders where they collaboratively adopted the “Transforming our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development” document. 
Based on the unanimously adopted agenda, all UN member states are set to complete all SDGs (related to poverty, hunger, energy, climate change, peace, etc…) to the best of their abilities by the year 2030.
In other words, the SDGs are not an agenda done alone, but rather it is a collaborative global effort where many are made aware of these major international crises and are called upon to act.

As a Japanese Movement

In a decision made by the United Nations, the Japanese government, businesses, and private organizations have agreed to work together in order to achieve the SDGs by 2030 and this helps tackle the SDGs while also helping promote their influence. In 2016, the prime minister was established as the chief cabinet secretary and the minister of affairs as foreign heads at the SDG promotion headquarters. Everyone at the headquarters as members and a variety of groups such as government, NGO, NPO, experts, and international organizations, held meetings to facilitate the exchange of ideas and opinions. Also in 2018, they were actively working on the SDGs while being selected as being the [Future city of SDGs]. In 2019, related budgets were being allocated to the national budget with promotion efforts being carried out nationwide.

Domestic Enterprise Initiatives

Even though there’s no obligation to, more and more Japanese industries are adopting the SDGs. According to a survey by Toyo Keizai Newspaper, out of 1,501 companies, it appears 472 are referencing SDGs and 164 are considering it. This in total makes for 42% of the businesses that are both referencing and or considering them. This has doubled since the year 2016.

For instance, through the creation of artworks by children, we are creating a process where their artworks receive financial compensation. This allows us to contribute toward a society where people’s productivity is not negatively influenced by their disabilities.
Moreover, we focus on SDGs by embracing a diverse group of people in the running of our company. By celebrating individuality in society, we contribute to the realization of a sustainable society in the future.
