[Webinar] Five Steps Japanese Companies Must Take Now to Achieve True Sustainability
~A “social ecosystem” approach advocated by Mr. Rishi Agarwal, FSG

Friday, October 1, 2021, 14:00 – 15:30 JST

Many companies are now advocating their commitment to the SDGs and have made solving social issues through their business a part of their company’s path. On the other hand, companies are now questioning whether they are just “SDG-washing” (e.g, all talk, no action) or just not meaningfully contributing to solving societal issues. It is not enough to show the connection between the 17 goals of the SDGs and your business. Organizations must also quantitatively show how much benefit they have actually brought to society.

Under these circumstances, Japanese companies often say, “We cannot solve societal issues by ourselves.” This is precisely why a “social ecosystem” approach is essential.

“In recent years, the term “social ecosystem” has been used as a business term that means “building a relationship of coexistence and co-prosperity through collaboration with stakeholders.”

A prominent advocate of this “social ecosystem” approach is Mr. Rishi Agarwal of FSG.

FSG was founded in 2000 by Michael Porter, a professor at Harvard Business School, and Mark R. Kramer, a senior lecturer at Harvard Business School, to provide CSV (Creating Shared Value) consulting services on a global scale. Mr. Agarwal is the Managing Director and Head of FSG’s Asia Operations. He will be joined by Ms. Yukiko Kuroda, Founder of People Focus Consulting.  She has promoted the role of corporations in creating social impact over the last 20 years and is also an external board member of several publicly listed Japanese companies.

In this webinar, the two will discuss the following topics.
(The presenters’ remarks will be simultaneously translated into English or Japanese.)
