Contribution to SDGs

Javer and the UN Sustainable Development Goals

The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the new global sustainability agenda, consisting of 17 goals set out to solve the most urgent problems the world is facing today through specific targets. The SDGs promote the participation of governments, industries, businesses, and society as a whole for their adoption in order to make the 2030 Agenda a reality.

Javer is committed to actively adopt the SDGs, embracing them as part of the Social Responsibility Model and using them as guidelines in the development and ongoing improvement of the Company.

The SDGs were classified through an analysis into three categories depending on their level of relevance and impact to operations as follows:

  • Relevant
  • Secondary
  • General

The actions and programs carried out are related to the SDGs identified as relevant. As of 2022, having already achieved great maturity in the basic CSR programs, efforts are also made to contribute to the secondary SDGs. In this way, the Company demonstrates its commitment to continuous improvement.
