Measures Implemented in Relation to the SDGs

Five material issues for CSR and relevant SDGs

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are international goals for the period from 2016 to 2030. They are described in the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development that was adopted at the UN Sustainable Development Summit in September 2015. They are the shared goals of everyone on earth, including not only governments but also businesses and civil society.
SDGs are a set of 17 goals and 169 targets for achieving a sustainable world. They are aimed at realizing a world in which “No one will be left behind.”
Based on SDGs and targets, the Toyo Ink Group has associated 12 of the SDGs that are closely related to its business activities with material issues for CSR and clarified how the Group will contribute to achieving the goals and targets.
