Teshima island in Kagawa


As people are adopting more sustainable consumer behaviors, customers look for brands that represent their values, and expect companies to have clear sustainability practices across their business operations.


On the other hand, investors are now fully embedding ESG and sustainability in their investment process, and increasingly looking to direct their funds towards companies that are making positive social or environmental impacts in the world, and divest from companies with poor ESG performance.  


Sustainability is now mission-critical for business. 


How do you incorporate sustainability into your business operations,

including your corporate travel and business events?

Sustainable Development Goals

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by the UN in 2015, provides a blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future.
