Ecosystem services provided by natural capital (biodiversity) are the basis of our lives and economic activities. A business model in consideration of biodiversity supports the sustainability of the entire society, which includes business activities. At the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in September 2015, Sustainable Development Goals were adopted, whose 12 Goals out of 17 are relevant to environmental issues including natural capital and climate change. MS&AD positions environmental problems as an important management issue, and aims to build a sustainable relationship between the Earth’s environment and our business activities. In respect of natural capital, MS&AD explicitly includes “sustainable use of resources” and “conservation of biodiversity” as our key issues in “MS&AD Insurance Group Environmental Basic Policy” and we promote our activities in these fields. We declare to the society that we will take a responsible role in the field of natural capital (biodiversity) as a signatory.
