The 2030 Agenda for sustainable development ratified at the UN summit in September 2015 by 193 countries includes 17 goals regarding sustainable development (Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs), regarded as the continuation of the millennium development goals, already defined in 2000 by the United Nations. The partial achievement of the latter has led to defining other more challenging and ambitious ones.
The 17 goals of the 2030 UN Agenda (which are further divided into 139 targets) include: eradicating hunger, poverty and inequality; combating climate change; ensuring education, training, health & safety; gender equality; innovation and sustainable production and consumption.
The Hera Group, through its 59 targets for the future (“what we will do…”) detailed in this report and organised according to the “shared value” drivers and organisational levers, contributes to the achievement of the 10 targets of the 2030 UN Agenda.
As reported in the table below, Hera’s contribution by number of targets is predominant in 5 goals: Decent work and economic growth, Innovation and infrastructure, Sustainable cities and communities, Responsible consumption and production and Climate change.
