About the environmental vision

The Environmental Vision 2050 defines the sustainable society towards which the Shindengen Group aspires as a “Decarbonization”, “Recycle-oriented society”, and “Society in Harmony with Nature”, and we focus on this ideal not only in the Shindengen Group's business activities, but throughout our entire value chain; implementing the following initiatives aimed at minimizing environmental burden by the year 2050.
In addition, we have also established the Environmental Targets in 2030 as a milestone towards the Environmental Vision 2050, which is surely linked to “Shindengen’s SDGs” issued by the Shindengen Group.
