Involvement with the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals)


In September 2015, the UN held the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit at UN Headquarters and adopted the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which consist of 17 goals and 169 targets as an "Action Plan for Humanity, the Planet, and Prosperity.”

The Crestec Group, as an "Information Creation Company", creates communications that connect people to people and people to things around the world under the theme of "GLOBAL COMMUNICATIONS: Creating people-friendly communications that connect the world." We are developing our business globally to give shape to the information we want to convey, to create excitement and joy in the hearts of people around the world, and to build a society where people can live with joy and peace of mind. Through these business activities, we aim to create an environment that provides necessary information equally to everyone in the world regardless of age, gender, race, religion, language, or economic status. In other words, we aim to build a society in which people around the world can communicate with each other without difficulty, transcending language barriers. We strive to create new tools and to develop and provide services and solutions to contribute to the creation of a sustainable society by working toward the creation of information that is easy for everyone to understand.
