As an established player in the food and beverage industry, the Group, through its activities, contributes to the achievement of 7 out of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals identified by the United Nations.
The contribution to the 2030 Agenda
The Global Agenda for Sustainable Development (Agenda 2030) was adopted by all Member States of the United Nations in 2015 and stems from a clear assessment of the unsustainability of the current global development model not only from an environmental perspective, but also from an economic and social one. The Agenda defines 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to monitor the process of change in the development model.
The implementation of the Agenda requires a strong involvement of all actors in the community: businesses, the public sector, civil society, philanthropic institutions, universities, research centres, and cultural pratictioners. Aware of the potential impact on ESG issues, the Group has embarked on a process to enhance its contribution to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. These Goals have been identified considering the specificities of the food sector and by taking into account the Group’s business model, its Code of Ethics, its practices and policies and the activities carried out.
