Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs - how are we assisting our clients and colleagues to under stand and incorporate them into their business operations?
Firstly, lets learn more about the SDGs, and how are they relevant to my business or organisation?
Created in 2015 as a response to the ongoing call globally to address our social and environmental concerns, the family of the United Nations (UN) set about to create an ambitious fifteen year long plan to work towards addressing some of the most significant concerns faced by communities world wide. A mean feat to say the least, and an approach which is aimed at a common set of goals, a shared set of values and results in mind.
Businesses and organisations in general, and the wider community are joining forces to contribute their ideas and demonstrate ACTION.
Implementing processes and systems from international standards
Sphere staff have been training in and learning about the details of international standards as a basis for assisting their clients and colleagues, as a platform to address the SDGs. Our goal is to relay the benefits of the ISO series of clear, concise and systematic standards and to maximise the uptake of relevant standards for our clients and colleagues. Building the capacity of society globally to understand their impacts on the social and natural environments, whilst still addressing economic and financial aspects of business and community, is a motivator for us here at Sphere Environmental Professionals.
