Why do we need to know the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)?

TSUEN WAN, Hong Kong - June 10, 2021 - PRLog -- September 2015, all 193 member states of the United Nations adopted a plan to create a better future for all — paving the way for the eradication of extreme poverty, inequality and injustice, and the protection of our planet in the next 15 years.  Realizing these ambitions requires unprecedented efforts from enterprises, and individuals, including all sectors of society. Enterprises play a very important role in this process.

Sustainable consumption and SDG
Sustainable production and sustainable consumption are inseparable. The UN Global Compact aims to promote corporate awareness and actions to support the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030. Many major brands and retailers have committed to the UN Global Compact's goals, signing the principles for joining the Compact. They have respectively pledged to abide by the UN's sustainable development principles in areas such as human rights, social standards, environment, and anti-corruption.

For example, effective management of common natural resources, toxic waste, and pollutant treatment methods are critical to achieving Goal 12. It is also important to encourage industries, businesses, and consumers to recycle, reduce waste, and support developing countries in switching to sustainable consumption patterns by 2030. From a consumer perspective, this means understanding the importance of personal consumption to the environment, and looking for third-party certified products when shopping to promote sustainable consumption.

BrandLoyalty's latest Tucano travel luggage series is made of 100% recycled PET plastic, and it has successfully applied to have this become the world's first travel luggage certified by TÜV Rheinland. Another product that has received TÜV Rheinland Green Product Certification is the "UNBEELIEVABLES" series of plush toys by TCC Global Group. The content of recyclable substances in these plush toys is as high as 96% (average level). The TÜV Rheinland Green Product Mark is a voluntary verification mark aimed at regulating consumer products and their environmental impact, and guiding end-consumers in identifying green products.
