Initiatives for SDGs

The "SDGs" are international goals that we aim to achieve by 2030.
Bethel agrees with the idea of "SDGs" and will contribute to its achievement.

What is SDGs ?

From September 25 to 27, 2015, the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit was held at the United Nations Headquarters in New York, and the "Transforming Our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development" was adopted. 
This agenda set out declarations and goals as action plans for humanity, the planet and prosperity.
This goal is the successor to the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and is the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which consist of 17 goals and 169 targets.

SDGs Policy

At Bethel, our vision is to make the world happy with innovation.

"Make the world happy" is a sustainable challenge.  In order to continue to coexist and prosper with the limited resources of a beautiful earth, "make the world happy" is a very thought in line with the SDGs agenda. 

Bethel will continue to contribute to the achievement of the SDGs through our business.
