In addition, regarding the 14 key issues, we work to solve environmental and social issues through business and mitigate the negative impacts of our business activities on the environment and society.

1.How the Shindengen Group Identifies SDGs-Related Material Issues

There are 169 SDGs targets. The Shindengen Group’s approach to material issues involves prioritizing key items by the degree of impact they will have on stakeholders and the degree of importance to the Group. After regularly holding dialogues with outside experts, the CSR committee identifies the material issues.
