Objectives

Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are international goals for 2030 adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in September 2015. These SDGs were established to transform our world to a sustainable global society under the pledge that “no one will be left behind”. One of the characteristics of SDGs is universality, and efforts from every country and major entity are expected regardless of being a developed country or a developing country. For example, correlating SDGs with various activities around the world (such as efforts conducted by private corporations & local governments, consumption & investment activities, IoT, etc.) has the potential to realize truly sustainable growth.

The xSDG Laboratory aims to conduct transdisciplinary research and utilize SDGs as an approach to resolve issues in diversified and complicated societies, and actively publicize results through publications, websites, etc.

Outline of Research Activity Plan

  • Explore possibility of joint research projects through workshops, etc. targeting companies and organizations
  • Collaborating with companies through educational activities (for example, establishment of endowed chairs)
  • Promotion of research consortium “xSDG Consortium”
  • Publishing information through websites, SNS, symposiums, and publications
  • Establishing an “SDG repository” that analyzes research activities at the SFC from the perspective of SDGs

xSDG Laboratory supports the SDGs.
