The Agenda 2030
On 25 September 2015, the UN Summit in New York adopted the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development. The 17 goals of the Agenda are to contribute to enabling all people worldwide to live in dignity.
We are committed to implementing Agenda 2030 for sustainable development and meeting the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We are committed to concrete action and will document our achievements through indicators. As not all targets are equally applicable to companies, we will focus our efforts on the following:
