Initiatives for the achievement of SDGs

Sustainable Development Goals

In 2015, the United Nations adopted the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which are a collection of 17 global goals to create a prosperous and vibrant future and aims to have them met by 2030 through a range of global-scale initiatives.

Under the Softbank Group corporate philosophy of "Information Revolution — Happiness for everyone," the Company has established five core themes aimed at realizing a society where people all over the world can live happy, fulfilling lives. These themes are the "Promotion of an Information-Oriented Society"; "Development of the Next Generation"; "Consideration of the Needs of the Elderly"; "Conservation of Environment and Precious Resource"; and "Disaster Response and Reconstruction Support".

As a member of the international community, the SoftBank Group together with its group companies will contribute toward achieving the SDGs by advancing these core themes and taking initiatives to resolve social issues.
