Chiyoda Corporation was founded in 1948 during the time when Japan was starting to move powerfully toward postwar recovery. With ‘serving society through technology’ as its founding motto, the company has kept moving forward in accordance with the Corporate Philosophy of ‘Energy and Environment in Harmony’ and in unswerving awareness of the requirements of the global community.
In the Paris Agreement adopted by the United Nations in 2015, a consensus was reached by the international community that it aims for a carbon-free society as an approach to climate change. With The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as global common goals, business entities are strongly urged to make efforts to solve global issues through their businesses.
In addition to the initiatives that form the foundation of our CSR, Chiyoda has identified key sustainability issues aiming to simultaneously resolve global issues and achieve economic growth.
In the future, we will integrate the identified issues into our business plan and further strengthen our efforts to achieve the SDGs through our business activities.
Steps for Identifying Priority Issues
Step1. Identification of Business Sectors and Issues
In accordance with SDGs Compass guidelines, we have implemented the following SDGs dissemination activities for a certain period.
- Internal Education and Dissemination
- Employee Questionnaire
We have identified SDGs that we believe are achievable through our business using the HSE / CSR target setting sheet.
Step2. Definition of Materiality
As a next step, in light of the medium-term management plan, we have identified issues of high importance amongst the issues identified in Step 1 by (1) sorting the distribution of the 17 goals and (2) analyzing them from the perspectives of both social and business impact.
