Sustainable Development Goals

Our CARE BEYOND SKIN Sustainability Agenda contributes to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs). The SDGs were agreed in 2015 by the UN General Assembly as a “blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all”. All targets are intended to be met by 2030.

    Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development
    Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss
    Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable, and inclusive institutions at all levels

    We are supporting the SDGs
