17 goals to transform our world
Ahlers supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
On 1 January 2016, the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development — adopted by world leaders in September 2015 at an historic UN Summit — officially came into force. Over the next fifteen years, with these new Goals that universally apply to all, countries will mobilize efforts to end all forms of poverty, fight inequalities and tackle climate change, while ensuring that no one is left behind.
The SDGs build on the success of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and aim to go further to end all forms of poverty. The new Goals are unique in that they call for action by all countries, poor, rich and middle-income to promote prosperity while protecting the planet. They recognize that ending poverty must go hand-in-hand with strategies that build economic growth and addresses a range of social needs including education, health, social protection, and job opportunities, while tackling climate change and environmental protection.
The UNs 17 SDGs are an important milestone in putting our world on an inclusive and sustainable course.
As a company, the employees of Ahlers jointly decided to focus on the following SDGs: “Good health and Well-being” (Nr. 3), “Quality education” (Nr. 4), “Decent work and economic growth” (Nr. 8) and “Climate action” (Nr. 13). These 4 SDGs will become a focus area in Ahlers short and long term strategy.
