Alignment to UN SDGs
Aligned with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, our Impact 2025 goals remain steadfast. 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 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.* Alignment to these goals represents the commitment to extending our reach in global impact. *Source: United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs, Sustainable Development;
