About us



The Institute for Sustainable Supply Chain (commonly known as JIZOKEN) was established in July 2019.
Members involved in poverty and environmental issues in developing countries sympathized with the activities of the Dutch NGO Solidaridad, and began gathering together in a loose network to support the establishment of a Japanese branch.
Since the official launch of Solidaridad Japan in August 2020, we have been collaborating with the organization by co-hosting webinars.
