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.

Companies are also required to take action to achieve the goals.
