The SCREEN Group is constantly working to improve our Sustainable Value (social value) so that we can better contribute to the sustainable development of society. Based on this guiding principle, we have formulated Sustainable Value 2023, a medium-term management plan and been addressing climate changes and the social issues identified by the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
As a solution creator, we aim to fulfill our corporate social responsibilities by meeting the expectations and earning the trust of diverse stakeholders, and also realize sustainable society through our businesses. To do so, we are striving to proactively deploy various initiatives that emphasize the environment, social and governance (ESG).
