MARUI GROUP's Idea of Sustainability
MARUI GROUP will achieve harmony between the happiness of all stakeholders through inclusion.
MARUI GROUP strives to practice "co-creation management," which entails working together with all of its stakeholders to co-create customer happiness. Moreover, we are focused on the concept of "inclusion" as the key to responding to ever-changing customer needs and social issues and forging a better future. Inclusion entails including and reaching out to all those who have previously been excluded.
Our idea of sustainability requires that no one be excluded and that everyone be able to enjoy quality living, health, and prosperity. With similar goals in mind, international society adopted Transforming our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development at the United Nations General Assembly, convened in September 2015. This agenda included the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a set of 17 goals with 169 targets that have been embraced by Japan and 192 other countries worldwide.
Inclusion, or excluding no one, is part of the spirit of the SDGs, meaning that these goals point us in the same direction as adopted by MARUI GROUP's management, which seeks to achieve harmony between the interests and the happiness of all stakeholders. By engaging in co-creation activities with all of its stakeholders, MARUI GROUP will actively contribute to the accomplishment of the SDGs through its business to help create a flourishing and inclusive society that offers happiness to all.
