UN SDGs


In conjunction with the development of our materiality assessment, we have reconfirmed our commitment to prioritising the pursuit of our four overarching sustainability principles, and illustrated their alignment with those UN Sustainable Development GoalsĀ (SDGs) and their underlying targets that fit our business model, the businesses that we currently own, the sectors in which they operate, and their key stakeholders.

We have identified the specific UN SDGs and underlying targets where the Group makes the biggest direct contribution. We will continue to further align those targets with our businessesā€™ activities and our new sustainability reporting framework and move to adopt them in 2021.

The integration of UN SDGs and their targets into our business model links our sustainability objectives with those of society and aligns our value creation strategy with our stakeholders.Below, we have summarised our relevant UN SDGs, their respective targets, and examples of how we and our businesses are contributing to them:
