Preview United Nations Global Goals: 2030

United Nations’ global goals for 2030, slated to be formally unveiled at their Social Good Summit in September. These goals were presented by U.N. Foundation’s Aaron Sherinian at the annual Cause Marketing Forum.

Here they are:

  1. No Poverty
  2. No Hunger
  3. Good Health
  4. Quality Education
  5. Gender Equality
  6. Clean Water and Sanitation
  7. Modern Energy
  8. Good Jobs and Economic Growth
  9. Innovation and Infrastructure
  10. Reduced Inequalities
  11. Sustainable Cities and Communities
  12. Responsible Consumption
  13. Protect the Planet
  14. Life Below Water
  15. Life Above Water
  16. Peace and Justice
  17. Partnerships for the Future

Of course all businesses makes some kind of social impact, intentionally or not, positive or not. This list demonstrates (again) that a company’s social impact extends well beyond charitable giving and cause marketing, although those are excellent places to start.

The way forward is for corporations to look not only inside but outside their walls to see the impact their actions and activities have along their entire supply chain and its stakeholders.  It seems that some companies get it earlier and better than other – Tata’s, M & M, UPS, Nike, Infosys, Wipro, Godrej, Eileen Fisher, Unilever, IBM, Colgate Palmolive, for instance – aren’t waiting to be regulated into thinking about these issues. These enterprises are working on all 17 in one way or another. And yet when asked what’s left to do, they will answer “still so much more.”

One Earth Foundation, a registered NGO works in the sectors of Education, sustainable living, traditional knowledge systems and special needs groups.  We stand committed to work with and support CSR initiatives  that generate shared value for all stakeholders.
