Initiatives for SDGs

What are the SDGs?

SDGs stands for “Sustainable Development Goals.”

The Sustainable Development Goals, which were adopted unanimously by United Nations (UN) Member States at a UN summit in September 2015, are a collection of international goals that aim to build a better and more sustainable world by 2030.

There are 17 SDGs and their 169 associated targets—all designed to create a better and more sustainable world in the future. The SEKIDEN group will actively work toward achieving these goals and targets.
