Our commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals
17 Pillars for a sustainable future
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development includes a set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), adopted by the world leaders at the United Nations General Assembly in 25 September 2015.
The SDGs are a new global model to eradicate poverty, promote prosperity and well-being for all, protect the environment, and combat climate change, and set the roadmap for sustainability management priorities for the following years.
In order to achieve these goals, it is essential the commitment and effort of each and every one of us: citizens, society, companies and governments.
Galp is committed to the future and, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are for us more than simple commitments. These goals shape our business model and our performance, since they are shared and integrated in our everyday activity: focus on people, respect for human rights, security, combat inequalities, access to energy, responsible and sustainable production and consumption, protection of the environment, and combat climate change.
We assume the 17 SDGs as an integrated set of goals of fundamental importance for a sustainable future. However, within the sector where we operate and considering our activity, the goals assume a different preponderance. That's why we have grouped them into three blocks that reflect their position in our activity: material SDG, direct SDG and indirect SDG.
