The UN sustainable development goals

We support the new UN sustainable development goals, otherwise known as the Global Goals. Our approach to corporate responsibility recognizes the challenges the goals are intended to tackle and our corporate responsibility strategy is focused on delivering our contribution.

Global Goals for Sustainable Development

MYM - Global Goals

What are the Goals?


On September 25th 2015, 193 world leaders committed to 17 Global Goals to achieve three overarching objectives in the next 15 years:

  • End extreme poverty
  • Fight inequality and injustice
  • Fix climate change

The Global Goals replace the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) which were intended to focus global development efforts from 2000 through to 2015. The Global Goals incorporate a series of supporting targets and performance indicators which run until 2030. The Global Goals are:

No Poverty Zero Hunger Good health and well-being Quality education Gender equality Clean water and sanitation
Affordable and clean energy Decent work and economic growth Industry, innovation and infrastructure Reduced inequality Sustainable cities and communities Responsible consumption and production
Climate action Life below water Life on land Peace and justice Partnerships for the goals The global goals


How are we supporting the Goals?


We firmly support the Global Goals. A more prosperous, healthy, well-educated and equal society, in a stable, just and environmentally sustainable world is clearly a better place for our customers, our employees and our other stakeholders.

Our corporate responsibility strategy is designed to support these objectives. As we implement our CR strategy, so we contribute to achieving the Global Goals.  Our current activities align with the Global Goals in a number of ways:
