Sustainable development goals at BonelliErede

Here at BonelliErede, we have chosen to adopt 6 of the 17 sustainable development goals in the United Nations 2030 agenda for the protection of the planet and the wellbeing of all its inhabitants. We pursue our chosen goals daily through partnerships and initiatives.

  • No poverty
  • Good health and well-being
  • Quality education
  • Decent work and economic growth
  • Sustainable cities and communities
  • Responsible consumption and production

The UN underlines how much the term sustainable – once linked only to environmental issues – has branched out to include economic and social dynamics. We strive to be a sustainable organisation in every way, just as the UN intends it, and that means harmonising the three dimensions of sustainable development:

  • Economic growth
  • Social inclusion
  • Environmental protection

The SDGs we’ve adopted:

No poverty

Over 800 million people worldwide live in poverty – too many without access to adequate food, clean drinking water or sanitation.

Supporting communities to increase access to basic resources is essential if we are to eradicate poverty.

Good health and well-being

Good health is fundamental for sustainable development, especially in a world of growing social and economic inequality, fast urbanisation, and threats to the environment. Everyone has a right to adequate health care.

Quality education

Quality, fair, inclusive education and life-long learning opportunities is vital for people to achieve a better quality of life and for sustainable development.

Decent work and economic growth

For economic and sustainable growth, society needs to provide quality jobs – that boost economies and don’t harm the environment. All those of a working age deserve decent jobs and working conditions.

Sustainable cities and communities

Putting resources to better use and reducing pollution and poverty will enable cities to overcome the challenges faced and go on to prosper and grow. We want a future with cities that offer everyone opportunities and access to basic services, energy, accommodation, transport, and a whole lot more besides.

Responsible consumption and production

This is about efficient use of resources, energy and sustainable infrastructures in order to guarantee everyone access to basic services, decent jobs that respect the environment and an overall better quality of life.
