<講演内容 / Speech content>


As momentum for the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) adopted at the UN Summit in 2015 grows, more and more businesspeople are becoming aware of the SDGs and ESG as keywords for their own management strategies. I would like to unravel the background behind the attention paid to SDGs and ESG, and ask whether they will become a serious issue for Japanese companies. In this session, we will discuss how to change business, why ESG investment is attracting attention, and what impact it will have on corporate strategy.
