Epson Commits to the Realisation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
What are Sustainable Development Goals?
"Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development" was adopted in 2015 at the UN Sustainable Development Summit, which was attended by more than 150 world leaders.
This agenda is a plan of action for people, planet, and prosperity that includes a declaration and a set of 17 goals and 169 targets for sustainable development.
Key CSR Themes and Sustainable Development Goals
As stated in its Management Philosophy, Epson seeks to become an indispensable company, an ambition that Epson considers to be consistent with the realization of the sustainable development goals (SDGs) of the United Nations.
In 2017, as part of this effort, Epson created "Key CSR Themes," a materiality matrix that identifies important initiatives for addressing social issues. Epson examined the relationship between its initiatives and the 169 targets of the 17 SDGs to identify the SDGs that intersect with Epson's initiatives.
Commitment to the SDGs
Epson confirmed that its initiatives support the achievement of the 14 SDGs.
Epson believes that the growth strategies it has outlined in the Epson 25 Corporate Vision will help to achieve the SDGs. Epson will solve social issues and help to realize a sustainable society by driving innovations in four areas and executing environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) initiatives that support the realization of the Management Philosophy.

To realize a better world for future generations, Epson will contribute to the achievement of the SDGs by looking hard at solutions to social issues, trying new ideas and methods to create new value, and providing surprise and delight that exceeds customer expectations."
