CSR, ESG and SDGs
While concepts such as CSR, ESG and SDGs are commonly used by businesses in the context of addressing societal challenges and creating non-financial value, we concluded that they all fall under “sustainability,” which is what we ultimately aim to achieve. We endeavor to drive sustainability incorporating activities that concern CSR, meet ESG standards, and contribute to SDGs.
