Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted by 193 UN member countries as common goals that the world should address in aiming for sustainable development. Regarding the SDGs as “a social issue to be contributed to through business,” Lion will contribute through its business.
In 2011, Lion confirmed and evaluated the progress of domestic group companies based on ISO 26000, a global social responsibility standard, as well as by listening to and incorporating the opinions of third-party organizations. Based on this outcome, Lion identified sustainability material issues in 2012 and set three-year, medium-term objectives, in consistent with its medium-term management plan. Since 2015, we have expanded coverage from the domestic group to overseas groups, and continue to address sustainability throughout the entire group.
With regard to sustainability material issues and objectives for the period from 2018 to 2020, we will identify social issues—extracted on the basis of ISO 26000, SDGs, the 10 principles of the UN Global Compact, and the GRI Guideline—and analyze material issues by evaluating the degree of social and business impact.
