The social, environmental and economic problems that arise worldwide represent an opportunity for evolution for society. However, this is only possible if concrete actions are taken.
This is why the UN created the well-known 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which establishes the SDGs or sustainable development goals, a series of objectives to be met to guarantee a sustainable future.
What is sustainable development?
It is a proposal that promotes the advancement of society and the economy making rational use of natural resources today, so as to guarantee access to them for future generations.
Sustainable Development Goals
Can you imagine a future without rights inequality? Without poverty, famine or pollution? With easy access to clean water for all? All of this is just a fraction of what these goals seek to achieve.
Through innovation, the 17 sustainable development goals seek to solve the current problems facing society, protect natural resources and promote economic growth.
What relationship do they have with companies?
You may be wondering what all of this has to do with your company. To do this, you should know that these objectives can only be achieved through the integrated action of civil society, the private sector, governments and other institutions.
Therefore, it is essential that companies take part in this movement and thus achieve a better future for society.
