Corporate InformationSustainability

With our 2021 Mid-term Management Plan, we have advanced to a new stage, identifying five sectors where we can increase social, environmental, and economic value for our customers simultaneously: mobility, smart life, industry, energy, and IT. The five SDGs to which we aim to contribute through our business strategy are best aligned with these five sectors. We believe that working toward these goals will provide not only growth opportunities but also the chance to create new social value through business. This section examines current global trends connected with each of these goals, explores the roles we must play through our Social Innovation Business to achieve them, and introduces some of the contributions we have made through our products and services in each of the five sectors.
