Contribution to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

The UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide a framework for achieving the agenda and targets set by the UN Member States that collectively signpost what needs to be done to end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice and protect our planet.

We have mapped our six Sustainability Priorities against these goals, eight of which are highly relevant to our stated ambitions.
