Contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
Guided by our fundamental management philosophy that client satisfaction is the true value of our company and that the growth of each of our employees creates the value that shapes our future, we at transcosmos strive to contribute to the achievement of SDGs through responsible corporate activities and businesses that hinge on people and technology.
Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are international goals under an agenda adopted at the UN Summit in September 2015. They run until 2030 with the purpose of putting the world on a sustainable path toward a better future for all. The agenda comprises 17 goals and 169 targets, and while the SDGs are universal in nature—meaning that developing and developed countries alike will strive to achieve them—each nation will address the process individually at a national level.
transcosmos SDGs Committee Initiatives
We acknowledge the importance of analyzing and understanding the risks and opportunities inherent in the 17 SDGs and the management strategies related to each of these goals from the perspective of our sustainable growth. Toward this end, we have established the transcosmos SDGs Committee, which is specifically designed for aligning our business and management resources with our SDG initiatives, setting targets prioritizing social issues of particular significance, and confirming the progress on a regular basis.
With the aim of raising awareness and permeating our SDG initiatives, the committee runs various SDG-driven activities both internally and externally including SDGs training courses for our employees (e-learning), internal workshops with the selected members from each function, and more.

We have been offering quality, reliable, sustainable and resilient services including regional and transborder infrastructure, to support economic development of our clients.
Opening operations bases
We have been opening our operations bases both in Japan and abroad to protect labor rights, and promote safe and secure working environments for all workers, including women and those in precarious employment.
Finding Solutions to Social Issues through Our Corporate Activities
We have been striving to foster workplaces where everyone working in our company can fully unleash their sensitivity and creativity. To that end, we have always respected human rights, promoted diversity and a healthy work-life balance, and provided our employees with various personal development programs.
We have developed and implemented an environmental management system that complies with the international standard for environment systems I“SO14001.” Also, by providing services that lead to the enhancement of operational efficiency and manpower optimization, and environmentally-friendly services, we have been contributing to our clients and society in reducing environmental impacts. Internally, we have also been engaging in a variety of environmental protection and conservation initiatives, including the promotion of energy and resource conservation.
We have declared our support for the Task Force on the Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) and its recommendations to join global forces to tackle climate change. Currently, we are making necessary preparations to make TCFD-aligned disclosures whilst driving initiatives to contribute to society in solving climate-related challenges through our business activities.
Building on our Group’s technologies, services and experience, we have been promoting community initiatives focusing primarily on making vibrant local communities, developing future generations who will be taking on the responsibility of sustainable society, and promoting learning and education.
