Shimada's Initiatives for the SDGs

We, SHIMADA&CO.,LTD begin full-scale SDGs promotion activities.
These activities are based on the twin pillars of "environmentally friendly business activities" and "creating a comfortable workplace," which have been undertaken so far. The activities are incorporated into the eight priorities of the SDGs, which have been reconfigured by the government. The top management takes the lead in realizing the content of the initiatives on a company-wide basis.

We acquired ISO14001 in 2011 and have a track record of contributing to sales expansion of "environmentally friendly products" with the aim of global environmental conservation and sustainable development. Looking ahead, we will further expand sales of these environmentally friendly products while working to realize our unique business field, which incorporates 3R (reduce, reuse, recycle) with an emphasis on the environment. In this way, we will strive even further to create new sustainable business opportunities.

Regarding the other pillar of "creating a comfortable workplace," we will work to create an environment in which diverse human resources can work energetically, with "promotion of health management," "creation of an environment for active participation by women," and "enhancement of training according to company positions" as priority items.
In all of these endeavors, we are committed to continuing to take on the challenge of changing times through these activities, based on our SDGs promotion activities, which are the foundation of our efforts as a specialized trading company of our size, and as we move toward becoming a 200-year company.
