Structure of SDGs Promotion
In 2018, Daiwa Securities Group has established the SDGs Promotion Committee chaired by the President and CEO to discuss our policies on SDGs promotion.
The initiatives of SDGs promotion and ESG are discussed in the Committee. The contents of discussions are reported to the Board of Directors and the Executive Management Committee when appropriate. Also, important policies on SDGs and ESG are reviewed and approved by the Board. We continue to enhance the Board’s supervisory function with regard to the progress on SDGs promotion and ESG issues.
We always invite external experts to the SDGs Promotion Committee, which enables us to utilize their expertise and insights in its discussions.
Based on discussions made by the Committee, we are working to roll out SDGs promotion initiatives to the entire Group through the Corporate Planning Department’s SDGs Promotion Office, as well as strengthening collaboration and raising awareness of SDGs within the Group.
