WHAT THE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS MEAN TO US
The integration of the SDGs has taught us to view sustainable development as a business response to the challenges we face as a society — to use business driven approaches to create lasting economic growth to address social needs and empower communities.
Last year, we identified nine SDGs to integrate into our business operations and drafted a purpose statement to articulate how our commitment to sustainability fits within our business strategy. The following three pages provide a brief overview of these nine goals and how we have interpreted/integrated them, together with examples of specifi c contributions we have made towards them during the year.
What are the Sustainable Development Goals?
The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of 17 ‘Global Goals’ that describe how we can work together as countries, businesses and individuals to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all. https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/sdgs
