Sustainability Goal Priorities

The work we do as an organization complements and supports the sustainable development goals adopted at the UN Summit in 2015.

The UN Global Compact (UNGC) is a voluntary initiative that seeks to advance universal principles on human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption through the active engagement of the corporate community, in cooperation with civil society and representatives of organized labor. The Topcon Group joined and signed the UNGC in October 2007. 

In 2015, the United Nations created 17 world development goals called the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with the aim of "peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future." 

At Topcon, we embrace and support the UN SDGs. 

Here’s how our work directly contributes to specific UN SDGs:
