It was an opportunity to introduce both sides, share experiences, discuss common interests, and explore potential collaboration opportunities in the areas of sustainability and innovation. Japan’s commitment to innovation and technology is a key driver in its efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030 and net-zero CO2 emissions by 2050. For the next step, the Taisei MD will introduce Sasin to specialists from Taisei’s Advanced Technology Center and from the Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry (METI) of Japan in order to identify specific projects or initiatives in the areas of sustainability and innovation that could lead to collaborative efforts. Sasin and Taisei can potentially align their respective capacities to create solutions that are both sustainable and innovative. As a leading business school, Sasin offers expertise in business strategy, entrepreneurship, and management to help identify innovative sustainability challenges. On the other hand, Taisei brings expertise in construction, engineering, and technology which can be used to design and build energy-efficient buildings and sustainable infrastructure while applying cutting-edge technologies to reduce carbon emissions. By leveraging their respective capacities, Sasin and Taisei can co-create solutions that are not only environmentally sustainable but also economically viable and socially responsible. Collaboration can also help foster knowledge-sharing and technology transfer between our two organizations for more effective and efficient solutions to sustainability challenges.
