Sustainability update

Published: 17 Dec 2021

The Regional Sustainability Group for the South West and Wales has launched a set of New Year’s resolutions aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Looking for ways in which we can take action against each of the goals to improve the Environmental, Social and Governance of our businesses locally, each New Year’s resolution suggests a practical way of changing the way we do business.

The UN Sustainable Development Goals are part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and are described as a "blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all":

“The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries - developed and developing - in a global partnership. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.” (source: https://sdgs.un.org/goals)

Further information about each of the UN Goals can be found on the website, including targets, publications, events and progress toward the Goals.

The Regional Sustainability Group calls on you to consider the ways that you can contribute in each of the 17 areas.
