The UN Sustainability Development Goals and our role
The world’s leaders have committed themselves to achieve four things by 2030: eliminating extreme poverty, reducing inequality and injustice in the world, promoting peace and justice, and solving the climate crisis. The UN has established and resolved on 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to achieve this.
At the UN summit in autumn 2015, heads of state from around the globe adopted the 17 SDGs and the resolution the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. From January 1, 2016, countries around the world undertook up to 2030 to lead the world towards a more sustainable and just future.
If this is to be achieved in every country, companies are also expected to analyze the goals and identify how their operations can contribute to meeting the goals. We have reviewed the key issues pertaining to the 2030 Agenda and the UN SDGs, to see how Green Cargo can help meet the goals.
The following three SDGs are the most relevant during the 2021–2023 business plan period.
- Sustainable Development Goal 8: Decent work and economic growth
- Sustainable Development Goal 9: Industry, innovation and infrastructure
- Sustainable Development Goal 13: Climate action
For each of these SDGs, Green Cargo has the capability to be part of the solution or to enable our customers to do so.
