We are also a partner of Global Compact Yearbook, which is a strategic report of Global Compact Poland. The document presents a map of Poland's development until 2030 based on the Sustainable Development Goals- SDGs. SDGs will help people to live better, healthier and safer in 2030, both socially, environmentally and economically. These goals were adopted by the UN General Assembly in 2015. It is national governments that are responsible for their implementation. Without business involvement, however, it will not be possible to achieve them.
Our sustainable development strategy supports the implementation of 4 selected SDG' s:
decent work and economic growth - in the area of economics (goal 8)
sustainable cities and communities - in the area of society (goal 11)
responsible consumption and production - carried out in three areas: economics, society and the environment (goal 12)
climate action - in the area of environment (goal 13)

Companies from all over the world that belong to and support UN Global Compact apply the universal principles of human rights, labour standards, environment and anti-corruption in their business strategies.
