Our activities are mapped against the UN Sustainable Development Goals, to demonstrate how we will contribute to solving global sustainability issues. Our 2030 ambition is proposed with a two-phase approach:

Phase 1

2022–2023: Measurement and validation of our sustainability and social value

Phase 2

2023–2030: Lifecycle reductions / improvements across our environmental and sustainable commitments
2023: Establish a strong program of societal activity including philanthropy, DE&I and Health and Wellbeing

Our commitment to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG's).

It is important that all of our environmental and societal activity is mapped against the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), to demonstrate how we will contribute to solving global sustainability issues.

The SDGs promise action on 17 critical social and environmental issues — from ending poverty and homelessness, to protecting the planet and fighting inequalities — by 2030. While 193 world leaders have signed on to tackle the SDGs, governments can’t achieve them alone. So, the 17th goal is a call for businesses and citizens to step up — to solve the world’s biggest issues collectively and systemically.

The SDGs are an internationally understood and respected benchmark by which OT Group can measure, promote and index against when establishing and delivering a philanthropic programme. They will also provide a sense of purpose for employees, customers and suppliers that will connect them to the company.
