BHN’s Challenges to SDGs

What are the Sustainable Development Goals(SDGs)?

SDGs are globally shared by the international community for solving global issues by 2030.

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (the 2030 Agenda) is a set of international development goals from 2016 to 2030, which was adopted by the UN Sustainable Development Summit held in September 2015 building on the success of Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
The 2030 Agenda listed “Sustainable Development Goals” consisting of 17 goals and 169 targets in order to eradicate poverty and realize a sustainable world. The SDGs are universal goals applicable, not only to developing countries but also developed countries, and pledge “Leave no one behind.” through the implementation process.
Japan makes utmost efforts to implement the 2030 Agenda with international community based on the concept of human security.(From the Ministry of Foreign Affairs website)

How do we contribute to the SDGs?

When we, BHN, implement our business/activities contributing to the SDGs, we adopt a an “Outside-In” goal-setting approach. That is, we set our goals by looking at what is needed from external social or global needs. Then, we implement our business/activities with the purpose of contributing to attainment of the SDGs.
Taking into account the importance/urgency of societal or global needs and the strengths BHN has gained through its experience implementing activities, we, BHN, define priorities to contribute to the SDGs.
BHN provides support to corporations that intend to contribute to the SDGs. For example, BHN guides them towards access to appropriate information and good models/examples.
