In 2015, the United Nations put 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into effect as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. Achieving these objectives requires cooperation between the public and private sector, in addition to investment capital, technology innovation, and engagement of the world's citizens. However, how do we contribute while engaging with all of these stakeholders in a viable and sustainable way to ensure the long-term success of supporting programs? How do we track, connect, and communicate challenges and successes in the field? Which technological innovations will play an instrumental role in achieving our common goals?
For Riecotel Group, many of the UN's SDGs relate closely to our core business, including: Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure; Sustainable Cities and Communities; Affordable and Clean Energy; Good Health and Well-Being; and Gender Equality. With a significant footprint and experience across Africa, accomplishing these goals helps enable the long-term sustainable growth of our company.
