Kaga Electronics Co., Ltd. established the SDGs Committee, effective April 1. This action is intended to extend its response to CSR and ESG beyond the initiatives it has taken to date and promote sustainability throughout the entire group.
The international community is changing as it seeks to create a sustainable society, as evidenced by the adoption of sustainable development goals (SDGs) at the U.N. General Assembly, among other factors. Given this background, plus the fact that ESG investment in companies that proactively work on ESG issues is increasing every year, companies urgently need to address environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors to ensure sustainable growth.
The SDGs Committee is chaired by the president and COO, and comprise each division’s chief officers, among others. Working groups on the environment, society, and governance are set up under this committee to establish guidelines, measures, and objectives for these ESG issues, as well as to monitor progress and perform other functions. This committee is designated as a body under the direct control of the president, along with the group’s Management Meeting and the CSR Promotion Committee. With the commitment of top management, the committee collaborates with the business divisions to expand SDG initiatives on an ongoing basis.
Going forward, Kaga Electronics will continue contributing to the creation of a sustainable society in line with our corporate philosophy of “everything we do is for our customers” by resolving social issues and achieving sustainable growth as an entity on an even higher level through the company’s business.

If you influence IT decisions at your workplace, you need to hear this. If you make the decisions, you need to listen, not just hear: Unless you start acting on CMMC compliance now, you are putting yourself at a disadvantage—one that will take much more time to correct than you might expect. Think of me as a spokesperson for the industry I represent: we are concerned about you. From what I’ve heard and seen over the last few months, too many of you are listening to suppliers, upstream and downstream partners, or other business owners on how seriously to take CMMC. As a result, far too much wishful thinking is guiding decision-making. So, listen to the experts.

Business email compromise/email account compromise (BEC/EAC) is a sophisticated scam that targets both businesses and individuals who perform legitimate transfer-of-funds requests. The scam is frequently carried out when an individual compromises legitimate business or personal email accounts through social engineering or computer intrusion to conduct unauthorized transfers of funds. The scam is not always associated with a transfer-of-funds request. One variation involves compromising legitimate business email accounts and requesting employees’ Personally Identifiable Information, Wage and Tax Statement (W-2) forms, or even crypto currency wallets.

Caleb Townsend is the co-founder of Factur, a new kind of recruiting agency that specializes in filling marketing and sales positions. I met with Caleb at SMTA Dallas and asked him to discuss the creative ways he’s helping contract manufacturers to practice Lean principles in their sales department. As Caleb says, his company helps sales departments embrace methods similar to those used on the shop floor, which sometimes means updating their filing system from a “shoebox full of business cards.”
