Studies on the 2020 Agricultural Census reveal a rapid increase in the number and size of agricultural corporations. More agricultural corporations will thus socially and environmentally affect our regional societies. From the perspective of the Sustainable Development Goals, the agri-industry needs to adopt the framework of creating shared value, that is, firms must attain sustainable competitive advantage by creating economic and social values. Agricultural corporations need to develop dynamic capabilities that enable them to flexibly exploit their management resources and adapt to rapidly changing environments. This study aims to clarify the importance of agricultural corporations’ environment, society, and corporate governance (ESG) activities to their development. The results of a questionnaire survey of 927 members of Japan Agricultural Corporation Society reveal the following : First, trends in ESG activities vary by farming type ; second, these activities directly affect farm development ; and third, there is high correlation between the index score of ESG activities and the index of dynamic capability. Thus, in the context of sustainability goals and trends, and in addition to the economic issues addressed thus far, research on the effects of ESG activities on management and their related factors is becoming increasingly important for agricultural corporations.
