Developed by the United Nations in 2015, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a way we can categorize, or focus, our efforts to ensure what we do and how we do it has a cumulative positive impact on global issues.
SDGs, a blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all, are 17 goals and 169 targets that address the global challenges we face and interconnect so that no one is left behind. This mindset – to provide a better future for all – is mirrored in the slogan of our Long-term Policy 2030, “Bringing hope for the future for our plant, society and all people.”
After initial discussions about the meaning of SDGs and how they link to company goals, leadership at DENSO Mexico wanted to educate managers about these goals and their importance. With the help of an external SDG consultant, a 1-hour workshop was held for 60 associates from the general manager and above levels. In addition to getting a high-level view of each of the SDGs, attendees also learned best practices and implementation activities from other companies, institutions, special projects and individuals.
After some time to reflect and discuss the SDGs and how they impact DENSO Mexico, the 60 attendees were tasked with linking SDGs to current activities and 2020 plans.
