At the annual High-Level General Discussion (September 19-23, 26), which brings together world leaders, the theme of “Rebuilding Trust and Revitalizing Global Solidarity: Peace for All” was held. The theme is “Accelerating action on the 2030 Agenda and its SDGs for prosperity, progress and sustainability” and explores solutions to intertwined global challenges. The period before and after this general debate speech is called the “United Nations High-Level Week,” and various discussions are held, including the “SDG Summit (September 18-19),” which is a summit meeting of each country’s leaders and a negotiated political declaration.

What are SDGs?
Abbreviation for the Sustainable Development Goals, which were unanimously adopted by the United Nations in September 2015 by all member countries. While aiming for sustainable economic growth, each country is working together to achieve this goal based on the basic philosophy of “leave no one behind.” A wide range of goals have been set for “social aspects such as poverty and hunger, peace, gender equality, and education,” “economic aspects such as effective use of energy, work style reform, and elimination of inequality,” and “environmental aspects such as climate change and environmental protection.” has set “17 goals (goals) and 169 targets” with a deadline of 2030.
《About the Riviera Future Creation Project》
The businesses of the Riviera Group cannot survive without the blessings of nature. That is why we believe that we have a social mission to address various issues around the world as our own. The “Riviera Future Creation Project”, which started its activities in 2006, is currently promoting SDGs with all employees working on three axes: “environment,” “education,” and “health and medical care (well-being).” As part of this effort, Riviera Zushi Marina has been promoting sustainable town development since 2012, with the concept of “Sustainability Town Riviera Zushi Marina,” including the use of sunlight, beach cleanup activities, events that coexist with pets, and recycling-oriented farming. I’m here. We are also working to raise awareness of reducing CO2 emissions through activities to popularize electric vehicles. “Malibu Hotel” is the first hotel in Japan to introduce a V2B (vehicle to building) system, which allows electricity to be supplied from electric vehicles to lights and outlets at the front of the hotel in the event of a disaster, aiming to be a hotel that is both eco-friendly and disaster-prevention friendly. I’m here. Additionally, Riviera Zushi Marina’s hotels, restaurants, and event venues use 100% renewable energy. In December 2020, we established the Riviera Future Creation Project, a specified non-profit organization, to further promote this social activity. We will continue to take a wide range of steps, fulfilling the role of a HUB that connects people and organizations with each other.
