Sustainable Development Goals
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is a universal call aiming to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. It was adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015. By considering the nature of our operations and their impacts, we have identified 11 goals that are most relevant for our business and our stakeholders. We have chosen goal number 12, responsible consumption and production, as our main goal, because there we can have the biggest positive impact through our core business.
