SDGs Contribution Sales

SDGs Contribution Sales

In April 2019, our new Mid Term Plan "Create! 2022" was launched. In this "Create! 2022", we started to disclose "How much of the Group's revenue correspond to the 17 goals set by SDGs" as "SDGs Contribution Revenue". For FY Mar 2019, "SDGs Contribution Revenue" accounted for 25% of the Group's total revenue. We believe that initiatives for the SDGs are indispensable for the long-term growth of the Group, and we will continue to expand businesses that are compliant with the SDGs.

In the past three fiscal years (FY Mar 2018 to FY Mar 2020), SDGs contribution revenue was an average of 92.7 billion yen per fiscal year. We have set targets for each fiscal year in order to improve on the past average results by 1.52% annually and achieve SDGs contribution revenue of 100.0 billion yen in FY Mar 2025.

SDGs Contribution Revenue(SLGB)


In March 2021, we issued Japan's first SLGB (Sustainability-Linked Green Bonds), a combination of a Sustainability Linked Bond and a Green Bond.
We have set a target of sales corresponding to the 17 goals of the SDGs (SDG contribution sales), and will use all proceeds to construct the new Tokyo Head Office Building, the Group's Tokyo base building, which has excellent environmental performance.

Sustainability Linked Bonds (SLB)

SLB are bonds whose terms and conditions vary depending on whether or not they achieve predetermined Environment/ESG targets. Therefore, the funds raised need not be limited to a specific use of funds. SLB are assessed by key performance indicators (KPI) and SPTs predetermined by the issuer. A bond in which SPT is set as target values to be achieved with respect to KPI, and the terms of the bond change depending on whether the KPI achieve the SPT, thereby motivating the issuer to achieve the SPTs.

Green Bonds

A bond that conforms to the Green Bond Principles set forth by the International Capital Market Association (ICMA) and the 2020 edition of the Ministry of the Environment's Green Bond Guidelines, and is issued to raise funds for projects that contribute to solving environmental problems, i.e., "green projects".
