All 193 members of the United Nations, including Japan, adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development at the UN Sustainable Development Summit held in 2015 at the UN Headquarters in New York. The agenda consists of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 associated targets covering global social issues such as poverty, the environment and sanitation, human rights, climate change, and education along with challenges to be resolved and a vision to be achieved by 2030.

 

The SDGs are a universal endeavor involving the entire world, developed and developing countries alike, at both the national and regional levels, pledging to “leave no one behind.”

 

As a media outlet, we hope to contribute to the resolution of diverse global social issues, and to this end will inform society broadly about the presence and details of the SDGs through the ABC Group’s broadcasting content. And as a corporate citizen seeking to conduct ever more significant CSR activities, we will maintain our efforts to contribute further to the achievement of the SDGs, exploring new ways to do so.
