In 2015, the United Nations launched 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to promote prosperity while protecting the planet by building economic growth by addressing a range of global challenges including poverty, inequality and climate change by 2030.
Using the SDGs as our guide, we have mapped the challenges facing society against our business capabilities so that we can better understand how we can make the greatest difference. This led to the development of our 2030 Responsible Business Ambitions that help you run your world in ever more sustainable ways.
The Ambitions focus on four pillars: customers, colleagues, climate change and communities. Within each area we have identified that we will make the greatest contribution towards four lead SDGs, while contributing to a number of supporting SDGs. We will also support a range of wider SDGs through our Responsible Business Foundations and look forward to working closely with key partners to further shape and grow our Ambitions, as well as our contribution to the SDGs.
