In 2015 the United Nations developed The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development that sets out a plan ‘for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future.’ The goals recognise the need to end poverty, improve health and education, reduce inequality and aid economic growth whilst protecting the environment and fighting climate change.
Businesses can use the 17 points on the Sustainable Development Goals plan to ensure they are treating all employees equally and that they’re doing their bit to make positive changes that will help the world. Following the points will show that you’re focused on corporate social responsibility, which can enhance brand image, improve reputation, and show your commitment to make a difference.
As a business owner you could focus on one of these goals allowing you to make a difference in a specific area, by incorporating it into your business strategy at every step.
