Five Priority Materiality

Five priority materiality issues to be addressed by J. Front Retailing

SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals)
Global goals for the period from 2016 to 2030, which are included in the “2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development” adopted at the United Nations summit in September 2015. They contain 17 goals with 169 targets including “climate action,” “good health and well-being,” “gender equality” and “decent work and economic growth” and pledge to leave no one behind.

Sustainability road map

Aiming at the sustainable enhancement of corporate value, we have set our goals for 2030 and 2050 and try to implement “discontinuous initiatives” by backcasting.

Materiality KPIs and actions

We set medium- to long-term goals for each of five materiality issues and take specific actions. We believe we can contribute to the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) proposed by the United Nations by implementing each action.
