Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

Introducing the Yamaha Motor Group's key initiatives on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

Approach to SDGs

The United Nations Sustainable Development Summit was held in September 2015, and passed Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) comprising 17 goals and 169 targets as a “plan of action for people, planet and prosperity.”

The Yamaha Motor Group is engaged in business activities around the world, with the corporate mission of being a “Kando Creating Company—Offering new excitement and a more fulfilling life for people all over the world.” We have laid out our approach to the Group’s sustainability in the preamble of our Basic Policies of CSR, adopted in 2011, which states that the Group “strives to contribute to the sustainable development of society through our business activities based on our corporate philosophy.”

We are pursuing the SDGs as part of our commitment to sustainability, with the aim of achieving corporate growth through the resolution of social issues in the countries and communities in which we operate, as a company that all stakeholders, including society, always look to for the next advances and innovations.
