sustainable development goals

Our ambition to contribute to sustainability is strongly aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations (UN) that were adopted in September 2015. They compromise 17 goals and 169 targets to be attained by 2030 or earlier.

We have identified eight SDGs having particularly high relevance to our business. As a preliminary step, a pre-selection of relevant SDGs was made with our stakeholders as part of our materiality assessment.

Then the selected SDG goals were prioritized, choosing those in which we are confident we can contribute to most significantly. Finally, we developed our specific delfort goals, tailored according to how we are best equipped to make a meaningful contribution.
