SDGs: more than checking the boxes
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were endorsed by 193 state and government leaders in 2015 and must be achieved by 2030. These goals provide a universal framework for Voka, the Flemish employers’ association, in guiding organizations to develop future-oriented business strategies and business models. At delaware, we want to go beyond merely ‘checking the boxes’ when complying with the Voka Sustainable Business Charter. Through different initiatives and efforts, we believe we can have a broader positive impact on our environment, enabling our people, our company and our customers to reach their full potential.
Just like we emphasize strategic planning at all levels within our organization, we also strive to enhance performance and optimize the operational outcome in everything we undertake.
We are strongly committed to achieve the SDGs in whichever way we can. For example, we help reduce global poverty and increase sustainable development by making sure that our corporate social responsibility (CSR) projects focus on economic, social and ecological aspects that correspond with our company values.
