IDP Group renews its commitment to the Spanish Network of the United Nations Global Compact, an international initiative that promotes the implementation of 10 universally accepted principles to promote Corporate Social Responsibility in the areas of Human Rights and Business, Labor Standards, Environment and Anti-Corruption in the activities and business strategy of companies, as well as to align their corporate management with the Sustainable Development Goals and raise awareness of Agenda 2030.
The Spanish Network of the United Nations Global Compact counts at the moment with more than 1,508 adhered organizations that work to contribute to the Agenda 2030 and its 17 Objectives of Sustainable Development, objectives essential to reach a sustainable future.
On September 25, 2015, the United Nations General Assembly unanimously approved the Agenda 2030 with its 17 Sustainable Development Objectives (ODS) by the 193 participating States, including Spain. These objectives aim to end poverty and hunger, reduce inequalities and address urgent challenges such as climate change.
The ODS are 17 universal principles for the creation of a sustainable environment that promote change in practices to date and encourage responsibility for our planet and those who inhabit it. Successful implementation of these Goals requires the participation of all sectors of society: governments, civil society and business, all of which have a key role to play in this effort.
Since 2017, IDP Group is part of the Spanish Network of the Global Compact with the aim of strengthening the commitment to defend and practice the principles it promotes. This decision brings with it a responsibility and an opportunity to innovate, carry out new actions to constitute the basis of our Corporate Social Responsibility and apply these strategies in our daily processes.
