Hakuhodo DY Holdings' CSR report Creating Happiness: 2019 SDGs Collaboration Book has just been released online. In its CSR Policy, the Hakuhodo DY Group commits itself to "creating and spreading new happiness among sei-katsu-sha and society," and as part of that commitment it has published a CSR report since 2014. This is the sixth such report.
The Hakuhodo DY Group has been working energetically to promote awareness of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and to help achieve them. It was involved, for example, in developing the Japanese copy for the SDG icons. Last year's report, entitled Let's Create a New Kind of Happiness for Everyone! SDGs Action Book 2018, described what action we were taking toward the SDGs. This year's report, on the theme of collaboration, showcases eight ways in which we are working with our partners to achieve the SDGs by leveraging creativity.
The latter half of the report surveys the Group's sustainability initiatives, including Initiatives Addressing Our Key Issues (Materiality), Cultivating Human Resources, Healthy and Sound Workstyles, Environment, and Supply Chain.
Initiatives that could not be included in the report can be found on the Social Action Case Studies page in the CSR section of the Hakuhodo DY Holdings website (Japanese only).
