Respond to the Global Trend 1:
United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

In 2015, all 193 member states of the United Nations formally adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which includes 17 SDGs and 169 specific targets. These goals take into account the three dimensions of sustainable development: economic, social and environmental. Their aim is to eradicate poverty, hunger and inequalities, promote empowerment and capability of women and girls, build a peaceful, just and inclusive society, and protect the planet and its natural resources.

The achievement of the 17 SDGs will only be possible through collective actions and effective partnerships of the government and social organisations, including companies. In the process, companies can also use these goals as the basis for their framework of sustainable development strategy, linking operations to global priorities and embracing future growth opportunities.

CSCI reflects on the impact of the industry and its operations on sustainability and focuses on businessrelated SDGs. To contribute to the achievement of these goals, the Group plans to comprehensively assess its business’s impact, either positive, negative, current or potential, on the SDGs in the future to prioritise issues, and set the Group’s objectives and adopt targeted measures, embedding SDGs into the operations.
