Seven Focus Issues

  • Achieving a Safe and Secure Transportation Society

    Total annual distance traveled by Sagawa Express vehicles Approx. 600 million kilometers

    Awareness of Social Issues

    According to a survey by the WHO (World Health Organization), over 1.2 million people die in traffic accidents worldwide every year, and one of the United Nations' sustainable development goals (SDGs) is stated as "By 2020, halve the number of global deaths and injuries from road traffic accidents." The SG Holdings Group is a corporate group conducting business on public roads with approximately 26,000 vehicles of its own. As a company providing social infrastructure in the form of logistics, we believe that it is important to minimize the impact of traffic accidents and traffic congestion.

  • Promoting Environmentally Friendly Business Activities

    Awareness of Social Issues

    Two important environmental decisions were made in international society in 2015. One was the historic Paris Agreement made at COP21 (21st Conference of the Parties of the United Nations Climate Change Conference), establishing the goal of effectively reducing CO2 emissions by humans to zero. The other was the adoption of sustainable development goals (SDGs) at the United Nations Summit. As a logistics business operator using approximately 26,000 vehicles and emitting approximately 430,000 t* of CO2 (fiscal 2017) throughout the Group, SG Holdings considers efforts to reduce its impact on the environment to be a great responsibility.

  • Building an Organization of Diversity and Inclusion

    Number of Consolidated Employees Approx. 90,000

    Awareness of Social Issues

    In Japan, due to a shrinking workforce resulting from a declining birthrate and an aging population, the promotion of work style reforms has become a social challenge. Also, in the context of economic activity expanding globally and the United Nations promulgating Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), including gender equality, companies are increasingly being asked to undertake initiatives fostering respect for human rights. The SG Holding Group, as an enterprise with 90,000 employees working worldwide, has developed new employment and labor systems incorporating diversity and inclusion as well as work-life management, and we are promoting the respect for human rights throughout its entire value chain.

  • Creating New Value Through Comprehensive Logistics Solutions

    Awareness of Social Issues

    The total size of the logistics business in Japan including trucks, railways, ocean-going shipping, airfreight and warehouses is approximately 25 trillion yen, and the trucking business accounts for approximately 15 trillion yen (fiscal 2014) of this, indicating that our business provides an essential function to society. Meanwhile, the logistics business still has much room for improvement of efficiency such as reducing its environmental impact. The Group not only conducts a trucking business, but creates new value through comprehensive logistics solutions combining a nationwide transportation and delivery network, diverse functions of Group companies and partnerships with partner companies.

  • Contributing to Communities

    3 (As of March 31, 2016) → 26 (As of July 31, 2018)

    Awareness of Social Issues

    In Japan, revitalizing regional communities amidst a declining and aging population is a pressing issue. The SDGs recognize the mutual links between environmental, economic, and social issues and emphasize integrated solutions. As a socially responsible corporation operating in communities around the world, the SG Holdings Group is working to solve community challenges through an integrated approach that includes all three factors. In Japan, we implement various initiatives to contribute to sustainable development, including disaster recovery assistance and forming comprehensive partnership agreements for regional revitalization with local governments.

  • Promoting Sustainable Procurement

    Business Partners Approx. 16,000 Companies

    Awareness of Social Issues

    As calls for companies to address human rights and the environment increase globally, it has become necessary to engage in sustainable business activities throughout the entire supply chain in Japan and abroad. The sustainable development goals (SDGs) set forth by the United Nations also call for revitalization of partnerships, stating that they "can only be realized with a strong commitment to global partnership and cooperation." The SG Holdings Group is a corporate group supported by approximately 16,000 business partners (suppliers). Promoting CSR activities throughout the entire supply chain not only contributes to the development of a sustainable society, but also our own development.

  • Building a Responsible Management Foundation

    Practical implementation by each employee → Charter of Corporate Conduct (Code of Ethics and Conduct) → Corporate Vision → Corporate Philosophy → Development of a sustainable society

    Awareness of Social Issues

    We believe that it is essential that the SG Holdings Group, as a comprehensive logistics business providing social infrastructure, build a responsible management foundation to enable it to contribute to the development of a sustainable society. We strive to establish our corporate governance system, ensure compliance with all applicable laws, and strengthen risk management in accordance with the fundamental policies embodied in our Corporate Philosophy, Corporate Charter of Business Conduct, and Code of Ethics and Conduct.
