The UN’s Sustainability Goals
The 17 goals for sustainable development comprise the global plan of work aiming, amongst other things, to stop climate changes.
In order to achieve these goals, everybody has to make an effort: governments, businesses and each individual alike.
At Strandbygaard we have chosen to focus on three goals.
One of the partial targets under goal 7 is:
7.b By 2030, to expand infrastructure and upgrade technology for supplying modern and sustainable energy services for all in developing countries, in particular least developed countries, small island developing states, and land-locked developing countries, in accordance with their respective programmes of support.
When you choose to make your printed materials carbon neutral, you are supporting climate projects around the world that promote sustainable energy.
Over the next few years Strandbygaard will also focus on how our own production can become more carbon neutral.
