0.1 Aim of this course
0.2 About learning environment/preparation
0.3 About the use of learning content
 Securing an environment and time where you can concentrate, downloading materials in advance, verbalizing learning objectives (1Action
3Goals settings) and other preparations before you start watching videos. 1 Background of the need for sustainability management
1.1 Learn about the half-century lineage of sustainability
1.2 Understand SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) as a group of social issues 1.3 Understand ESG (Environment, Society, Governance) as a corporate evaluation axis
1.4 The 2020s is an era of transition

Although awareness of the word SDGs has increased, there is a tendency to focus only on the Gs (17 goals) and 169 targets, and focus on specifics such as what should be done to contribute to which number of goals.
However, even if you think about the specifics without understanding what the goal is for, you will not be able to reach the conclusion that it is okay.

In this part, we will explain what SD (sustainable development) and ESG in the SDGs really mean, why they have become so important, and how they will help companies transition in the 2020s. This page explains the background behind the need for (transition).
2 Significance of engaging in sustainability management
2.1 Positioning sustainability as a KSF (key success factor) for company survival
2.2 Converting social issues into management issues through “risk and opportunity” analysis
2.3 Learn about the spread of sustainability management issues 2.4 Overview of typical sustainability management issues

There are many managers and business people who think that
sustainability is a non-financial topic and is separate from management and their core business. However, companies need to understand that sustainability is a critical success factor that affects the viability of the company itself, rather than at the level of individual products, services, or individual operations.
This part explains the significance of companies engaging in sustainability management, with a focus on “risk and opportunity” analysis, which converts social issues into management issues.

3.1 Building and operating a sustainability promotion organization 3.2 Basic framework of sustainability management
3.3 Disclosure of sustainability information
In companies where there was no sustainability-related work until recently, there is no defined division of duties or duties, and there is no career path.

In this part, we explain how sustainability-related tasks can be divided among departments, incorporated into routines and
standardized, organizational structure and operational management, and information disclosure as a result.
