GOLDWIN’s Aspirations for Sustainability

The United Nations adopted the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015 with the aim of achieving a cohesive society, which synchronizes with our corporate goal. Therefore, we believe, regardless the size of contribution, we can take part in SDGs.

Thus, we are shifting our primary focus to “sustainability” and we will make wide-ranging efforts centered around the SDGs that broadens our social responsibility.

Each SDGs are interconnected and affects each other, therefore are not meant to be achieved individually. The sustainability which GOLDWIN strives also involves a collective efforts to an environmental conservation, social connections, our business operations, and our economic activities.

The SDGs 17 goals are broken down into categories of: People, Prosperity, Peace, Planet, and Partnership. We have applied our activities into 3 applicable categories: People, Prosperity, and Planet, for this FY2017 report.
