Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were established by the United Nations to create a plan to achieve sustainable development by 2030. The agenda outlines 17 Sustainable Development Goals, or SDGs, that the UN hopes to achieve by 2030, aiming to take action to end poverty, protect the planet, ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity and enable sustainable development by 2030 (United Nations).
At Image Furnishings, we are focusing on seven of the UN SDGs because they reflect the areas in which we can make the greatest possible impact on our internal stakeholders, the wider community, and our planet.
The SDG Wedding Cake illustrates the interconnectedness and importance of social, economic, and ecological systems to achieving these global goals. Image Furnishings has adopted this model to help guide and demonstrate our sustainability goals and show the interlinks between our social, economic, and ecological initiatives.
Our chosen UN SDGs enable us to focus on continued improvements in these areas along with mapping this progress against these goals in order to engage in good health & wellbeing, develop products and packaging responsibly as well as partnering with local organisations and charities whose environmental and social goals align to ours.
