Relationship with SDGs

Rubycon Group supports the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

In September 2015, “United Nations Sustainable Development Summit 2015” was held at the UN Headquarters in New York, where over 150 countries unanimously adopted “Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”.
This agenda sets out the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which consist of 17 Goals and 169 Targets.
