The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a universal set of goals to end poverty, protect the environment, and ensure prosperity for all as part of the global sustainable development agenda. Adopted by United Nations (UN) member states in September 2015, the SDGs will shape government, business and civil society priorities to 2030.
There are 17 SDGs, each supported by specific targets to be achieved over 15 years, which relate to economic development, social development and inclusion, and environmental sustainability.
As a responsible business, Urenco has analysed the SDGs and assessed where our operations have the potential to positively impact the 17 goals. In the areas where we make the biggest impact, we have included a synopsis of how our business aligns to each specific goal.
