Social Value Created through Our Businesses
In fiscal 2017, in the process of identifying material issues the Kawasaki Group designated four ways of creating social value through its businesses as its greatest priorities over the long term. These are providing safe and secure, clean, comfortable movement of people and goods by land, sea, and air; creating clean energy; improving social infrastructure, especially in emerging countries; and responding to the needs of an aging society and shortage of labor through automation. At the same time, management identified the SDGs that the Group should contribute to and set non-financial targets to reach by 2030. Kawasaki will regularly disclose its progress toward these targets while working to maximize social value, achieve sustainable growth, and contribute to the realization of the SDGs.
