Commitment to SDGs

As a global company with nearly 80% of its sales outside of Japan, the Topcon Group attaches importance to international frameworks and is actively working to meet them.

Within the Topcon Group’s top philosophy of “TOPCON WAY”, our corporate identity states that “Topcon contributes to enrich human life by solving the societal challenges within healthcare, agriculture and infrastructure”. This is a statement of the Topcon Group’s belief in solving the societal challenges through our businesses, and is in line with the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) adopted at the UN Summit in 2015. The SDGs require the participation of companies to achieve the 17 targets that apply to all countries, including developed countries, in addressing issues such as poverty and inequality, consumption and production, and climate change. Taking these international backgrounds into account, Topcon is promoting initiatives on the issues. The core of the businesses within healthcare, agriculture, and infrastructure is closely linked with activities for sustainable society. Topcon strives to solve societal challenges and meet the SDGs targets at the same time.
