Each SGI organization upholds the teachings of Nichiren Buddhism which originated in Japan, and functions based on the same objectives and principles as the Soka Gakkai in Japan. Each member organization, however, supports itself and is independently operated.

The Executive Board of SGI consists of representative members from different countries and holds meetings regularly.

In 1995, the SGI Executive Board adopted the SGI Charter, which states the purposes and principles of the Soka Gakkai International and the organization’s aim to contribute to peace, culture and education based on the philosophy and ideals of Nichiren Buddhism.
