The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They are a collection of 17 global goals set by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015 and contain 169 sub targets to be achieved by 2030.
They address the global challenges we face and cover social and economic development issues including poverty, hunger, health, education, global warming, gender equality, water, sanitation, energy, urbanisation, environment and social justice.
As a business, we too are tackling some of the biggest challenges facing society, creating a cleaner and healthier world today and for future generations. So when we were setting our own ambitious targets for 2025, we considered the UN SDGs and identified six of the goals where we can make the biggest positive impact, aligning them to our own objectives.
