President & CEO SoftBank Corp. Ken Miyauchi President & CEO SoftBank Corp. Ken Miyauchi

SoftBank Corp. has contributed to the wellbeing of people and society under our corporate philosophy of “Information Revolution — Happiness for everyone.” However, the world is facing a range of intensifying social issues, including the occurrence of natural disasters, environmental degradation and gaps in access to information. Today, the international community is cooperating to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), worldwide themes aimed at realizing a sustainable society where all people can enjoy peace and affluence. We consider contributing to the creation of a sustainable society a top managerial priority, and will thoroughly pursue initiatives to achieve SDGs as a good corporate member of society.

We identified six priority issues (materiality, or key challenges) on the path to developing a sustainable society, based on the concept of “a world where all things, information and minds are connected.” Our criteria for identifying these issues is based not only on its importance to SoftBank Corp., but also on its pertinence to SDGs and the demands of our stakeholders.

We expect our commercial 5G services, launched in March 2020, will trigger an acceleration of DX (digital transformation) across all facets of society. We will provide new solutions to overcome challenges, and create a range of business opportunities in various industries. We firmly believe that this will also lead to sustainable growth for SoftBank Corp.

Through the increased promotion of our Beyond Carrier growth strategy, we will contribute to the realization of our corporate philosophy, help achieve SDGs, and resolve issues facing society.
