For A sustainable Future
BioB complies with 9 of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals

 

With the goal to create a better and more sustainable future, the United Nations created a blueprint, also known as the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. The latter is a list of 17 interlinked goals that address global challenges, such as poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, and more.

 

We here at BioB genuinely care about the planet and our future and therefore aim to be as compliant with these goals as possible. Currently, we comply with the following 9 Sustainable Development Goals:

 

No poverty. Goal #1 recognizes that poverty is a multi-dimensional issue, with factors ranging from unemployment to social exclusion, vulnerability to natural disasters, susceptibility to disease vectors, and more. These factors prevent people from being productive members of society, but growing inequality doesn’t just hurt individuals. It also impedes economic growth and undermines social cohesion, increasing political and social tensions and, in some cases, driving instability and conflict.

 

Zero hunger. Goal #2 targets the hunger crisis, giving special attention to how food is grown, shared, and consumed. If done right, agriculture, forestry, and fisheries can provide nutritious food for everyone, generate sustainable income, support people-centered rural development, and protect the environment. Investments in agriculture are crucial to increasing productivity and supporting the sustainable food systems necessary to alleviate hunger worldwide.

 

Good health and well-being. Goal #3 aims to increase health and well-being for people of all ages. By providing more efficient funding to health systems, improving sanitation and hygiene, increasing access to physicians, and reducing ambient pollution, significant progress is expected to be made—saving the lives of millions.

 

Gender equality. Goal #5. Gender equality is not only a fundamental human right, it’s a necessary foundation for building a peaceful, prosperous, and sustainable world. Today, 1 in 5 women and girls between the ages of 15-49 have reported experiencing physical or sexual violence from an intimate partner within a 12-month period. Despite this, 49 countries still lack the laws necessary to protect them from domestic violence.

 

Decent work and economic growth. Goal #8 targets the roughly 50% of the world’s population that still lives on only $2 a day. With global unemployment rates at 5.7%, having a job no longer guarantees upward mobility or the ability to escape from poverty. This slow and uneven progress requires us to rethink and retool the economic and social policies we’ve developed in the past.

 

Industry, innovation, and infrastructure. Goal #9 aims to increase investments in infrastructure worldwide – from transportation and irrigation to energy, IT, and communication technology. These developments will play a crucial role in empowering communities and encouraging sustainable development.

 

Sustainable cities and communities. Goal #11 recognizes that cities are vital hubs for ideas, commerce, culture, science, productivity, social development, and more. At their best, cities enable people to advance socially and economically in ways that would not be possible in more rural areas.

 

Responsible consumption and protection. Goal #12. If we wish to make production and consumption more sustainable, we need to promote resource and energy efficiency, develop sustainable infrastructure, provide access to basic services, and create decent, green jobs. Implementing all of these will help to reduce poverty, make development plans a reality, reduce future economic, environmental, and social costs, and strengthen economic competitiveness.

 

Climate action. Goal #13. Climate change is now impacting every country on every continent, disrupting national economies and derailing lives. These effects, which cost people, communities, and countries dearly, will continue to multiply if left unchecked. References: https://sdgs.un.org/goals
