UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

Sustainability
We continue to support the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and remain committed to driving progress on specific goals that are aligned to our sustainability agenda.
The SDGs provide a framework for development and address the challenges that the global population faces from tackling climate change and environmental risks through to managing societal needs and building economic growth.
 
We continually review the SDGs to which the Group can contribute directly. The launch of our net zero ambition in 2021 means we have added SDG 13 - Climate Action, to the list of SDGs we directly contribute to. We have also added SDG 16 - Peace, justice and strong institutions, which reflects our Company purpose, in particular our tole in helping our customers provide security and safety and our commitment to governance, ethics and responsible behaviour.
 
The Group contributes to the six SDGs outlined below by leveraging the individual elements of our sustainability agenda which will drive change for the Group and its wider stakeholders and communities. The global and wide-ranging nature of our business means that our programmes influence other SDGs.
