How can it help? – Global Compact Network Japan (GCNJ) and the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) today announced the launch of a report summarizing the results of a survey on the progress front-running Japanese businesses are making towards realizing the SDGs. The publication follows up last year’s IGES-GCNJ survey report “SDGs and Business in Practice – Early Actions by Japanese Private Companies” which gave an overall picture of initiatives on SDGs by Japanese companies. This year’s report looks at ways to integrate SDGs into core business focusing on two approaches – Organisations and Corporate Activities. This latest report also includes 25 case studies highlighting ongoing SDG measures and initiatives undertaken by concerned businesses, as reference material for SDG implementation.
