We Are Committed to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals
The 2030 Agenda
On September 25, 2015, world leaders from 193 countries signed the agreement to establish the 17 objectives, divided in 169 targets, to stop and mitigate the effects of climate change, promote social and economic equality, eradicate poverty and hunger, foster sustainable production systems and consumption habits, and construct structures that guarantee peace and justice. And all of this has a deadline: 2030.
The SDG’s, Infrastructures and Mobility
The commitment of companies — especially infrastructure and mobility management companies — is essential to bringing the SDGs to life. The level of influence and leverage the private sector has can largely contribute to fulfilling the agenda for sustainable development. Therefore, with the aim of reinforcing our implication in attaining the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals — we became a joint partner of the UN. We form part of the private sector advisory group of the United Nations Development Programme.
In this regard, we were the first company to certify our sustainability strategy with the SDGs. The business directly impacts a total of 10 of the goals set by the UN; indirectly, it affects virtually all of them. Some are directly related to our sphere of business. The SDGs on which our activity has a direct impact are the following:
- SDG 3: Health and well-being.
- SDG 5: Gender equality.
- SDG 6: Clean water and sanitation.
- SDG 7: Affordable and clean energy.
- SDG 8: Decent work and economic growth.
- SDG 9: Industry, innovation and infrastructure.
- SDG 12: Responsible production and consumption.
- SDG 13: Climate action.
- SDG 16: Peace, justice and strong institutions.
- SDG 17: Partnerships to achieve goals.
Each and every one of our strategy’s aspects aims to support reaching each of these goals.
With this plan, we’re facing a challenge: making the world a more sustainable place. It’s no longer an option: it’s a necessity.
