Involvement with SDGs
The Relationship between the SG Holdings Group and SDGs
The SG Holdings Group aims for sustained growth by resolving social issues through business as a comprehensive logistics group. When specifying seven material CSR issues, we utilized SDGs as a social perspective and also identified SDGs highly related to us.
Furthermore, in the Mid-term Management Plan Second Stage 2021, a three-year plan starting in fiscal 2019, "contribution to SDGs" is one of our key initiatives. This is because we believe our goal should aim in the same direction as the SDGs, which seek to realize a sustainable society, and we should move forward with it in order to sustain and evolve the logistics business as social infrastructure. We will contribute to the achievement of SDGs through various initiatives in line with the seven material issues.
What are SDGs?
An abbreviation of "Sustainable Development Goals." Seventeen goals and 169 targets adopted at a UN summit in September 2015, where it was agreed that countries worldwide should achieve them over the 15 years from 2016 to 2030 to create a sustainable society. Companies are also required to take action to achieve the goals.
Relationship between material CSR issues and SDGs
The seven issues below have been identified as material issues, and Group companies are implementing initiatives in line with these themes. SDGs that are particularly relevant to them are also described.

The SG Holdings Group' main business is logistics, and that business involves a lot of people throughout the entire value chain.

|Promoting Sustainable Procurement||
The SG Holdings Group is a corporate group supported by many business partners (vendors). We will not only conduct business with consideration for human rights and safety, but also cooperate with business partners in a variety of areas such as contributing to environmental issues and local communities, ultimately contributing to the achievement of the SDGs as a whole.
|Building a Responsible Management Foundation||
Corporate governance, compliance, and risk management are the foundation of our business. These are important issues, connected to all our business activities. Initiatives to construct sustainable management systems contribute to our efforts to achieve SDGs overall.
