SDG’s: We are taking action
‘’We integrate sustainable action into our business model and focus on the UN Sustainable Development Goals.’’
Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) UN's “2030 Agenda” and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted in September 2015 by the 193 UN member states, including Greece, is an ambitious commitment that can lead the way for the modern way of doing business. Achieving Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is a global challenge, but also an opportunity for the Greek business community and society to exit from the crisis and to achieve the much coveted development taking into account the wider environmental and social constraints and challenges, instead of simply aiming for development regardless of its impact.
Recognising the importance of taking action to achieve these 17 goals, Halcor launched a first approach to understanding and matching Sustainable Development Goals with the actions and programs it implements. Our first objective was to understand these Goals, to determine those that are directly related to our business activity, to identify any new material issues and to confirm that the policies and practices that we are currently implementing are moving in the same direction. Halcor’s practices and actions meet a number of SDG goals (see sustainability report for more information) , examples of which are shown below :
