Contributions to SDGs

Contributing to SDGs Through Business Activities

The JVCKENWOOD Group recognizes that companies must contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Accordingly, we have identified eight of the 17 SDGs connected particularly closely to our material issues as priority goals that particularly those closely related to social issues that the JVCKENWOOD Group is expected to contribute to solving. For information on initiatives that contribute to the achievement of SDGs in each business field, see Products and Services that contribute to solving social issues.

In-house Infiltration of Our Contribution to SDGs

All employees at JVCKENWOOD, from management to general staff, are kept informed about how its business operations are related to the SDGs through internal newsletters and workshops. We also distribute business cards and badges with the SDGs logo to applicants to raise awareness of the relationship between SDGs and businesses.


Hosting SDGs Forum 2020

SDGs Forum 2020 was held for all the JVCKENWOOD Group employees with the purpose of instilling an understanding of SDGs within the company and fostering a corporate culture.

At this forum, which was held in three cools in October, December, 2020, and February 2021, nine events were held, including lectures, workshops, and e-learning that addressed diversity, food loss, and solving social issues through technology, and a total of 4414 people participated in the forum.

The successful combination of real and on-line practices provided valuable opportunities for participants to exchange views with people who are not normally in close contact, and to share with them how people in different positions and situations think about their SDGs.

Raising employee awareness with pamphlets

All employees across the JVCKENWOOD Group were provided with a pamphlet designed to help them understand the SDGs, relate the SDGs to their own lives, and think about how they can contribute to achieving the SDGs.

Making the most of business cards

At the JVCKENWOOD Group, we use business cards featuring the SDG logo as a business tool in order to show our stakeholders that we endorse the SDGs and are committed to sustainability.
