To always findthe next way forward
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the successor to the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which were formulated in 2001. The SDGs are a series of international targets to be reached by 2030 with an origin of 2016, and are part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development adopted at the United Nations Summit in September 2015.
Consisting of 17 goals and 169 targets for the realization of a sustainable world, the SDGs have an overarching commitment to “leave no one behind.”
The SDGs are universal, not only for developing countries but also for developed countries. Japan is also proactively working toward them.
Goal 12 Responsible Consumption and Production, is one of the 17 goals, and targets “ensuring sustainable patterns of production and consumption.”
The SDGs incorporate a wide range of categories, such as poverty, education, energy, and hunger. We believe that these goals are very highly relevant to Japan’s government as well as Japanese companies.
