Relationship with SDGs

CSR challenges and the promotion of SDGs in efforts to solve social issues

The SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) are an international agenda of 17 goals and 169 targets related to the environment and development for the world to achieve between 2016 and 2030. These goals are held in common by every national and local government, non-governmental organization, and non-profit organization, as well as by public corporations and individuals with the aim of facilitating sustainable livelihoods and societies under the banner of leaving no one behind.

SDGs

THK is working toward the achievement of the 17 SDGs. However, our activities do not encompass all 169 targets. Below, we have outlined how the areas we are especially actively engaged in compare with the material aspects of CSR. We will continue to actively work toward achieving the SDGs.
