Japan will be fully embracing sustainability for the upcoming Summer Games, contributing to the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). However, these goals cannot be realized without meaningful engagement by global companies, even during the COVID-19 pandemic. Global Japanese corporations, in particular, are stepping up to help fight pressing environmental and social issues, with some moving towards zero carbon buildings and others teaming up with nonprofits to protect the oceans and marine life. What are global Japanese companies’ stance on SDGs and how are they contributing to a sustainable and resilient world? In this webinar, international experts and business leaders discuss SDG trends, SDG initiatives by global Japanese companies, and their vision for the future.
