Sustainable Development Goals
In 2015, 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted by all 193 UN Member States. These define global sustainable development priorities and aspirations for 2030 and seek to mobilise global efforts around a common set of goals and targets. The SDGs call for worldwide action among governments, businesses and civil society to end poverty and create a life of dignity and opportunity for all, within the available resources of the planet. At SHV, we believe the SDGs provide a new lens through which to translate the world’s needs and ambitions into business opportunities. These are opportunities to rethink business models, anticipate consumer demand and build positions in growth markets, while ensuring we can leave a sustainable family of companies to the next generation.
