Sustainable Development Goals

SCW heeft haar lange termijn-bijdrage aan de samenleving gekoppeld aan Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s). SDG’s zijn een set van zeventien ambitieuze doelen om wereldwijd duurzame ontwikkeling te bevorderen, opgesteld door de Verenigde Naties. SCW zet zich in om een positieve impact te maken op SDG 3 (goede gezondheid en welzijn), 6 (schoon water en sanitair), 7 (betaalbare en duurzame energie), 9 (industrie innovatie en infrastructuur), 11 (duurzame steden en gemeenschappen), 12 (verantwoorde consumptie en productie), 13 (klimaatactie), 14 (leven in het water), en 15 (leven op het land).
