Stakeholder Engagement

Overview of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

SDGs were incorporated in the 2030 agenda for sustainable development adopted at the UN Sustainable Development Summit in September 2015.
These 17 global goals for solving various challenges such as climate change, resource depletion, and human rights contain 169 targets.
The SDGs request action for sustainable growth not only to national governments, but also corporations and civil society, and the United Nations positions corporations as important partners for achieving the SDGs and requests that they work towards them.


Joining the Japan Clean Ocean Material Alliance (CLOMA)

The Japan Clean Ocean Material Alliance (CLOMA) was established in January 2019 with the assistance of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry as a place to enable corporations to exchange information and conduct business matching, with a focus on industry, in order to solve the problem of ocean plastic by promoting the sustainable use of plastic products and the development and adoption of revolutionary substitute products that will lead to a reduction in plastic waste.

CLOMA is joined by companies from various industries and has currently established three subcommittees to launch initiatives for solving societal problems with a focus on the exchange of information.

The Kyokuyo Group recognizes that the problem of plastic ocean pollution entails grave risk and is directly related to our business.
CLOMA distributes the latest information on new materials and substitute products, and we utilize this knowledge in our business activities to provide useful feedback and work on solving problems.

Our Pledge to the Food Systems Summit


About FSS(Food System Summit)

The FSS is a UN-sponsored summit based on the idea of UN Secretary-General António Guterres that a shift to a sustainable food system (a series of activities related to food production, processing, transportation and consumption) is essential to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

In order to build a sustainable food system in Japan as a whole, the commitments submitted by private companies that support the purpose of the FSS, including our company, was compiled together with the government's commitments and submitted to the secretariat of the summit.

The pre-summit was held in Rome in July 2021 and the summit was held in New York in September 2021.
