“Any company that doesn’t contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will be ignored by the market, and will go out of business. Companies in the future will be evaluated not just by their financial performance, but also their contribution to addressing these social challenges.”
Jake Yamashita, CEO, Ricoh
