Functions of the committee include reporting on and reviewing Group activities and providing support and guidance for future development. It also conducts public relations activities and public consultations and reflects related needs and information in action plans.
Initiatives for the SDGs
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of 17 goals and 169 targets to be achieved worldwide by 2030. Incorporated into the 2030 Agenda adopted at the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit in September 2015, the SDGs require that government and nongovernment sectors (companies and individuals) in all UN member states make collaborative efforts toward achieving them from 2016 to 2030. The SWS Group will contribute to achieving them as we endeavor to address social issues through our business activities.
