Sustainable development

Based on its experience in Asia, SHG Group has been developing a number of activities for the past twenty years, all of which are in line with the philosophy of the Chinese martial arts tradition. Through the martial arts school, SHG actively contributes to the creation of charities, risk management consulting, protection of people and property with its partner company, IAS8. As we look ahead to 2020, we must strive to use this experience as a learning process, even as a warning. We have all witnessed how Nature has regained its place after our economic activity has stopped. 2021 must be a pivotal year for all of us to strengthen and develop our businesses in a responsible manner, taking into account our . SHG and its president naturally want to be part of this effort. According to her, China and Southeast Asia are examples to follow in this field, representing an opportunity for many Westerners and non-Asian. SHG's wide range of activities naturally makes it a key player in.


Sustainable development is a concept of development or growth that focuses on the long term, integrating environmental and social. As SHG understands it, and in accordance with the definition given to it in the report of the World Commission on Environment and Development, known as the Brundtland Report, which coined the term in 1987, "sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs." Master Kong, otherwise known as Confucius (孔子), and his main disciples, called the Twelve Philosophers, were already teaching sustainable development and balance in 479 B.C. in the following works: the Book of Changes, or Yi Jing (易经), and the Spring and Autumn Annals (春秋 (麟經). In the West, this idea took root following a progressive awareness of the finite nature of the earth's environment that began in the 1970s. However, sustainable development has its detractors, such as the proponents of degrowth who consider that this concept remains too closely linked to that other concept, economic growth; other detractors.


SHG wishes to maintain its consulting, risk management and training activities within the Martial Arts in a double perspective: promoting personal fulfillment through the practice of Martial Arts while contributing to an economic development that preserves the health of humanity.

Le développement durable représente une conception du développement ou de la croissance qui met l'accent sur le long terme, en intégrant dans la réflexion économique les contraintes environnementales et sociales. Comme l'entend SHG, et conformément à la définition qui lui est donnée dans le rapport de la Commission mondiale sur l'environnement et le développement, dit rapport Brundtland, qui a inventé le terme en 1987, "le développement durable est un développement qui répond aux besoins du présent sans compromettre la capacité des générations futures à répondre aux leurs." Maître Kong, autrement appelé Confucius (孔子), ainsi que ses principaux disciples, appelés les Douze Philosophes, enseignaient déjà en 479 av. J.-C. le développement durable et l'équilibre dans les ouvrages suivants : le Livre des changements, ou Yi Jing (易经), et les Annales du printemps et de l'automne (春秋 (麟經).


En Occident, cette idée a pris racine à la suite d'une prise de conscience progressive de l'aspect fini de l'environnement terrestre qui a commencé dans les années 1970, mettant en évidence les limites à long terme. Le développement durable a cependant ses détracteurs, comme les partisans de la décroissance qui considèrent que ce concept reste trop lié à cet autre concept, la croissance économique ; d'autres détracteurs soulignent le fait qu'il représente un frein à la poursuite de la croissance.


SHG souhaite maintenir ses activités de conseil, de gestion des risques et de formation au sein des Arts Martiaux dans une double optique : promouvoir l'épanouissement personnel par la pratique des Arts Martiaux tout en contribuant à un développement économique qui préserve la santé de l'humanité.
