THE UN SUSTAINABILITY DEVELOPMENT GOALS
On 25 September 2015, the United Nations approved the Global Agenda for sustainable development and defined 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) structured in 169 targets to be reached by 2030.
The Agenda requires significant engagement from all members of society, including businesses, civil companies, the public sector, philanthropic institutions, universities, research centres, news operators and cultural organisations.
Hitachi Rail STS has identified the goals that it is able to help reaching:
- directly, through management models which enable the Company to follow a path of sustainable growth and guarantee a cohesive culture of responsibility and promote sustainable actions by individual collaborators: corporate commitment;
- indirectly, through the achievement of the company’s mission, which is to develop railway and mass transit systems and create increasingly sophisticated products and solutions that are safe and environmentally sustainable: business strategy.
