In September 2015, the United Nations adopted 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that address the world’s most important economic, social and environmental challenges. Underpinning these goals are 169 associated indicators that are used to support their implementation and to monitor progress. We recognize that the private sector plays an important role in achieving the SDGs and support their implementation as a framework for sustainable business practices.
Our assessment shows that we directly contribute to 13 SDGs. Of these we have identified four which are most closely aligned to our activities. These are; Decent Work and Economic Growth, Responsible Consumption and Production, Life on Land and Clean Water and Sanitation. We also contribute to the Climate Action goal indicators 13.1 and 13.2. We regularly review the SDGs to determine if we can increase our contribution to them.
