Why do we need to know the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)?
By: TUV Rheinland Hong Kong
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.
