The SDGs as a medium- to long-term business strategy

We are facing many social issues in our daily lives, including climate change, pollution, rapid urbanization and widening inequality. The world has high expectations for companies to solve social issues, which we can see in missions such as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs*) set by the United Nations. In response to this, business activities from the perspective of the SDGs, such as achieving carbon neutrality and developing products and services that contribute to safe and secure societies, are a central part of AISIN Group's medium- and long-term business strategies, and we will further accelerate our initiatives to solve social issues in future.
