Sustainability is no longer a question of why, but how.
Sustainable development goals have a far-reaching impact on businesses. While investors used to determine a company’s value only by its financial performance, today’s investors increasingly support brands that demonstrate positive environmental, social and governance measures.
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development outlines 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to overcome social and environmental challenges. At UL, our work significantly impacts five of the SDGs:
- SDG 3 on good health and well-being
- SDG 9 on industry, innovation, and infrastructure
- SDG 11 on sustainable cities and communities
- SDG 12 on responsible consumption and production
- SDG 13 on climate action
In this white paper, we will look at sustainability trends related to these five SDGs.
