The RJS Waste Management team has been working on making the company more sustainable in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). There are four SDGs that relate directly to our company’s activities – across the Chichester, Oxford and London offices – that we’re looking to achieve. Much work on their objectives and targets has already started but others will take time. Regardless, we can now say we’re green – in more ways than one!
What are the Sustainable Development Goals?
In 2015, United Nations Member States embraced the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development – a plan of action for people, planet and prosperity. There are 17 Sustainable Development Goals at its core, an urgent call to action built on decades of work, which are:
- No Poverty
- Zero Hunger
- Good Health and Well-Being
- Quality Education
- Gender Equality
- Clean Water and Sanitation
- Affordable and Clean Energy
- Decent Work and Economic Growth
- Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure
- Reduce Inequalities
- Sustainable Cities and Communities
- Responsible Consumption and Production
- Climate Action
- Life Below Water
- Life on Land
- Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions
According to the UN, the SDGs, “recognise that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests. And RJS Waste Management couldn’t agree more!
