Supporting the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

Commitment to Transparency

There are many challenges facing humanity. In order to secure the future for the Earth and its inhabitants, the governments of 193 United Nations member states in September 2015 signed a joint development plan, which included a program with 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

Based on our analysis, we believe our core business, initiatives, social impact agenda and philanthropic efforts contribute to – and can benefit from – many areas of focus within the 17 SDGs. The graphic below summarizes the topics most relevant to our core business and provides links to sections where we discuss our approach and contributions:

Our core business most closely aligns with:

  • Goal 7: Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all.
  • Goal 8: Decent work and economic growth
  • Goal 9: Build resilient infrastructure, promote sustainable industrialization and foster innovation.
  • Goal 11: Make cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.
  • Goal 13: Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts.
