The UN Sustainable Development Goals aim to mobilize efforts to end all forms of poverty, fight inequalities and tackle climate change. With TCO Certified, generation 8, your organization can actively contribute to solving a number of these challenges.
Humanity is facing widespread environmental and social challenges that can only be handled if countries and organizations all over the world mobilize their efforts and work together. The UN Sustainable Development Goals are designed to gather organizations from all parts of the world around shared priorities and ambitions, to be achieved by the year 2030: end all forms of poverty, fight inequalities and tackle climate change, while ensuring that no one is left behind. The Sustainable Development Goals also make it clear what role businesses can — and must — play in meeting these goals.
The 17 global goals were adopted by world leaders in September 2015 and are also called Agenda 2030.
The ambition of the Sustainable Development Goals is to address a number of social, economic and environmental challenges. TCO Certified includes criteria that are designed to contribute to meeting several of the goals, especially around responsible production and consumption as well as worker rights. Using TCO Certified in procurement makes your organization part of the solution.
