In 2015, the international community adopted two important documents that set the course of action for the whole world to take in the next 15 years and beyond: Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which set out 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the Paris Agreement under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
Reaching these ambitious goals requires not only the efforts of governments and international organisations but also businesses and the civil society, all working in partnership with a shared vision. Businesses are increasingly judged on their sustainability and social responsibility credentials, and it is essential that they communicate with the wider public about the efforts they are making towards a sustainable future. In the language their audience understands. That’s where translation comes in.
WayToJapan specialises in the translation of text on sustainability and corporate social responsibility between English and Japanese.
