Our SDGs Activities & Goal

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), agreed upon by over 150 countries and set by the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Summit in September 2015, are part of a UN Resolution called the “The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (the 2030 Agenda)”.

The Sustainable Development Goals are set of 17 goals and 169 targets, with the aim of building an inclusive and more sustainable society.

The SDGs cover a wide range of challenges, from poverty and hunger to environmental issues as well as economic growth and gender equality. The Agenda enshrines the Goals to be achieved by the target date of 2030, leaving no one behind.

Our Thoughts towards SDGs
We started participating in activities of SDGs along with our corporate philosophy: A company is a public entity of society. As a logistics company that brings happiness to people and society, we will continue to making effort to be a public entity of society.
At the company general meeting in 2019, Yasushi Tai, CEO of the company, spoke up to employees about the efforts to achieve the SDGs saying, “We will contribute to both the development of the company and society, and make the development proportion to each other.”
FCSL’s CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) activities began with a donation to the UN Refugee Agency.
We all support the activities of the UNHCR which works to help refugees and displaced people due to conflicts or persecutions. We have been making a donation to the organization every month, since May 2013.
As an international logistics company, we have many opportunities to interact with overseas. We have been hoping to fulfill our CSR by supporting the activities of the UNHCR.
“Employees are not just working, but are also living their own lives. Therefore, they should never be exhausted or considered as the company’s resources. By enriching their lives and broadening their horizons, I sincerely hope they can be both physically and mentally healthy. ”
We have started SDGs activities in order to embody the feelings that Tai has had for stakeholders and the global environment ever since the founding of the company.
We currently hold regular meetings and exchange opinions, mainly with volunteers.
With our desire to take action at the first onset, we started 4 distinct efforts to achieve the following six SDGs (③⑦⑧⑫⑬⑭).
Our efforts towards SDGs

Regarding the following 4 efforts, we are trying to further spread the SDGs activities to all employees by disclosing the details and the status for about half a year.

Paperless –

Previously, faxing and paper-based exchanges between companies were our work style, but now we are promoting DX (Digital Transformation) to simplify operations and make the administrative work paperless.

Currently, the number of copy papers used is clearly less than ever before.

Collection of PET Bottle Caps –

We deliver plastic bottle caps collected within the company to charities and donate polio vaccines to children around the world.

Since February 2020, we have collected about 3,200 plastic bottle caps and donated polio vaccines for four people in just six months.

Promote the Use of Eco-bags

Because all retail stores across Japan, including convenience stores and supermarkets, started charging shoppers for plastic bags in July 1, 2020 as a measure to protect the environment, we also purchased reusable bags and made them available to employees at any time with the aim of reducing plastic waste.

Reduce Waste of Office Equipment

We reviewed our orders and equipment management to reduce waste and decided to no longer purchase disposable products such as plastic cutlery. In addition to that, we only purchase refills for ball-point pens and lead for mechanical pencils.

Our efforts towards SDGs
We support the SDGs and contribute to achieving our goals through our international logistics business activities.   We took the first step towards implementation in 2020, and are taking actions on an ll 17 SDGs.
As Tai said, “We will contribute to both the development of the company and society, and make the development proportion to each other.”
