Epson's CSR and SDGs
Epson's Initiatives and Their Relationship to Our SDGs
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.
Epson confirmed that its initiatives support the achievement of the 13 SDGs below. (Please note that this matrix was mapped out in March 2018 and is subject to change depending on future business developments.)
Epson believes that the growth strategies it has outlined in the Epson 25 Corporate Vision will help to achieve the SDGs. Specifically, we 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.
Commitment to the SDGs
Epson is using its original efficient, compact, and precision technologies and initiatives as vehicles to drive innovations that will enrich the world and make it a better place. Our goals are the same as those of the sustainable development goals (SDGs) adopted by the United Nations.
Epson is creating new value by looking hard at solutions to social issues, understanding the expectations that society has of us, and then providing products and services that far exceed those expectations. We at Epson are committed to the development of sustainable societies through the four areas of innovation identified in the Epson 25 Corporate Vision.
