SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS
The United Nations defined sustainable development in the Brundtland Report as development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. It assumes that resources are finite, and so should be used conservatively and carefully to ensure that there is enough for future generations, without decreasing present quality of life. A sustainable society must be socially responsible, focusing on environmental protection and dynamic equilibrium in human and natural systems.
The United Nations in recent times issued 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) as its main aims for the successful achievement of a better and more sustainable future.
These SDGs seem to tackle 17 issues identified by the united nations which are: Poverty, Hunger, Lack of good health and wellbeing, Lack of Quality education, Gender Inequality, Lack of clean water and good sanitation, expensive energy, Unemployment and economic lack of growth in the economy, Lack of innovation and infrastructural development, High Inequality amongst the people, Unsafe human settlements, Inefficiency , Climate change, Inadequate aqua preservation, Improper preservation of nature, land, forest, animals, Wars and injustice weak institutions and Lack of partnerships.
We at Galea are poised at supporting the United Nations on these sustainable goals which we believe will help our business strive as well as create a good and sound environment for our operations.
WE HOLD THE 3 PILLARS OF SUSTAINABILITY IN HIGH ESTEEM
The concept of sustainability is composed of three pillars: environmental, social and economic—also known informally as profits, planet, and people. These are in particular relevant to corporate sustainability, and efforts made by companies.
At Galea, we take environmental protection, social development and economic development as the key factors for successful operation.
Environmental protection is the most frequently discussed element. It is concerned with the reduction of carbon footprints, water usage, non-decomposable packaging, and wasteful processes as part of a supply chain. Our industry uses energy efficient equipment and do well to manage the things that are found in the environment we operate.
Social development is about treating employees fairly and ensuring responsible, ethical, and sustainable treatment of employees, stakeholders, and the community in which a business operates. In order to achieve this, Galea Industries have devised a well-structured employee well-being and development plan, which is focused on providing good health care for employee, as well as giving support for employee to learn required skills for the job. We give equal job opportunities to all regardless of race, gender and or disabilities.
Economic development is probably the simplest form of sustainability. To be economically sustainable, a business must be profitable and produce enough revenues to be continued into the future.
