Industry spend on SDGs

SDG Mapping Project

In September 2015, countries from around the world adopted the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), officially known as "The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development" as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030.

The Agenda is a set of 17 aspirational "Global Goals" with 169 targets between them.

Individual IPA Members all pursue their own sustainability strategies and consistently report their progress against the SDGs.

The PGM industry, under the umbrella of the IPA, has undertaken a collaborative effort to map its joint contribution against several SDGs, and to develop a data-supported SDG-narrative in order to present an honest view to society and the growing ethical investor marketplace.

The comprehensiveness of the SDGs cuts across all aspects of business and therefore takes into account how core operations, supply chain, social investment, public advocacy, policy dialogue and partnerships contribute in positive or negative ways to the SDGs.

The SDGs cover exceptionally well the multiple aspects which are asked of modern business - their impact on society, on the environment, and their financial wellbeing.
