Through undertaking a comprehensive carbon assessment, Blue Connections IT has made progress towards achieving some of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The SDGs are a universal set of interconnected goals, targets, and indicators that constitute the global development agenda for 2015-2030. Adopted by 193 member states of the United Nations in 2015 as the successor to the Millennium Development Goals, the SDGs comprise of 169 targets categorised into 17 goals that focus on the five key elements of people, planet, prosperity, peace, and partnership.
Each goal advocates a general aim, which is supported by a set of primary targets that prescribe specific actions and timeframes (represented by a number, e.g., 1.1), and a set of secondary targets that are more flexible in their approach and open to interpretation (represented by a letter, e.g., 1.A). Together, the goals call for urgent action by all nation states to form a collective partnership to end poverty, improve health and education, reduce inequalities, boost economic growth, mitigate climate change, and preserve nature.
Depending on the industry sector and geographical location of the business, certain goals will have greater impacts and opportunities than others. Below are the focus SDGs for Blue Connections IT.
