In July 2019, KDDI invited Ms. Ayako Sonoda, President of Cre-en Inc., to the company's headquarters and held a stakeholder dialog session for the President and executive officers from the Deputy General Manager level up on the theme of "what role KDDI is expected to play in the drive towards a sustainable society." KDDI's new Medium-Term Management Plan for fiscal 2019-2021 released in May 2019 sets out the company's vision, to which a new, third, point―"contributing to the sustainable growth of society"―has been added. The company also presented an overview of KDDI's target SDGs alongside the Management Plan. This dialog session was held with the aim of exploring how KDDI can achieve its target SDGs.
In March 2019, KDDI invited Mr. Hidemitsu Sasaya, a CSR/SDGs consultant, to the company's headquarters and held a stakeholder dialog session on the theme of "Know the SDGs and explore KDDI's role." KDDI is already engaged in a range of sustainability activities and, with the new medium-term management plan that defines its work on the SDGs as a key challenge under the company's stated mission of "achieving a truly connected society", it is committed to further contributing to the global effort to bring about a sustainable society.
