Implementation of the SDGs

Implementation of the SDGs

SDGs is the acronym for ‘Sustainable Development Goals’. Adopted at the United Nations Summit in September 2015, the SDGs are intended to be achieved by 193 member states by the Year 2030 as an international goal for a more sustainable world. Consisted of 17 goals and 169 targets, the 2030 Agenda pledged to ‘leave no one behind’.

At Tomoya Residence Hotel Kyoto Nijo Takakura, we fully support the SDGs and strive to contribute to realising a sustainable community/region from the historic town of Kyoto.
