Measuring Our Impact

An important part of our efforts includes evaluating our work against global goals for sustainability. In partnership with our parent company, Subaru Corporation, we have accessed our efforts in the context of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs) since 2018. These 17 goals are part of the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and aim to inspire action for humanity and the planet.

We outline below the goals where we can have the most impact at Subaru and what environmental, social, and governance actions we have taken in the last year to help achieve these global goals. This is how we demonstrate our Love Promise and the difference we can make to the world.
