Sustainable Development Goals
As part of our sustainability strategy, we have defined our own Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which are an urgent call for action in a global partnership developed by the United Nations. They provide tools for companies to tackle the different areas in their sustainability work. SDGs cover aspects in terms of environment, people, human rights, regional and cultural differences and economy.
There are altogether 17 UN SDGs, of which we have collectively selected five. Based on these, we created three personalised themes to describe how we can build a more responsible society.
Borenius SDGs are:
- Gender equality No. 5
- Decent work and economic growth No. 8
- Climate action No. 13
- Life on land No. 15
- Peace, justice and strong institutions No. 16
