In 2015, the United Nations defined 17 global goals for sustainable development by 2030. Our “A Responsible Race” strategy directly addresses four of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): Gender Equality, Decent work and economic growth, Responsible consumption and production, and Climate action. With our strategy, we address our most material topics and contribute to the sustainable development of society by reducing the negative impacts of our business activities and contribute to lasting improvements where possible.
The aim of SDG 5 is to achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls. This includes ending all forms of discrimination, violence and harmful practices as well as ensuring women's participation and equal opportunities in the work place and in leadership roles.
Gender equality is an important part of our Strategy. How we work with it and measure progress is described in the chapter Our Employees and the chapter Our Supply chain.
The aim of SDG 8 is sustained and inclusive growth that drives progress, creates decent jobs and improve living standards. This includes per capita economic growth and its decoupling from environmental degradation, the eradication of forced labour and child labour and the protection of labour rights and improvement of working conditions.
We are proud to contribute to economic growth and job creation. Our work for decent work especially in our supply chain is described in the chapter Our Supply chain.
The aim of SDG 12 is to ensure consumption and production patterns that are compatible with planetary boundaries. This includes sustainable management of natural resources, reduction of waste, strict management of chemicals and supporting developing countries in improving environmental management.
This goal is at the core of our “A Responsible Race” strategy. How we work with it and measure progress is described in the chapter Our Products but also in the chapters Our Planet and Our Supply chain.
The aim of SDG 13 is to take urgent action to combat climate change. This includes achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement with private businesses reducing their emissions and the world achieving net zero emissions by 2050.
Climate protection is part of our strategy. Our work and how we measure progress is described in the chapter Our Planet.
