Madrid, 23 de septiembre de 2019.- Con motivo del 4º aniversario de la aprobación de la Agenda 2030 con sus 17 Objetivos de Desarrollo Madrid, September 23, 2019.- On the occasion of the 4th anniversary of the approval of the 2030 Agenda with its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), FCC Construcción joins the campaign #aliadosdelosODS to work on the dissemination of these United Nations Goals, in collaboration with the Spanish Global Compact Network, an initiative to which it belongs. The aim is to contribute to, from its own commitment to action with the SDGs, act as a loudspeaker and achieve a multiplier effect so that they are known and worked on.

On October 30, 2018 A3Sec joined the UN Global Compact, the world's largest sustainability initiative. Since the approval of the 2030 Agenda in 2015, in addition to its commitment to promoting the Ten Principles, it has worked to align its corporate management with the SDGs, where it finds new business opportunities, improves the relationship with its stakeholders and promotes innovation.

In this regard, A3sec has established a series of commitments and best practices aligned with its strategy. "We are very proud that A3Sec is part of this campaign and that we are committed to the principles of the Global Compact. We firmly and decisively believe that good practice means fulfilling the ten commitments. Thanks to this commitment and its fulfillment, we will be able to make the world more reasonable, kinder and, above all, much more respectful of the planet's natural and limited resources", Pablo Mendoza, CMO of the A3Sec Group.

The #alliesoftheSDS initiative is articulated as a communication campaign coordinated by the Spanish Global Compact Network. It is being launched to coincide with the fourth anniversary of the adoption of the 2030 Agenda on September 25, 2015, while the United Nations is holding a major international event to review the achievements of these four years and launch new initiatives.

With this type of action, the Spanish Global Compact Network and its member organizations also seek to contribute to the country's objective established by the High Commissioner for the 2030 Agenda under the Office of the President of the Government, that all citizens should be aware of the SDGs by 2020.


Boosting the contribution of business to sustainable development

It has been four years since the United Nations General Assembly approved the 2030 Agenda with its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), unanimously by the 193 participating States, including Spain. "Leave no one behind" is the core of the agreement. The SDGs propose to end poverty and hunger, reduce inequalities and address urgent challenges such as climate change.

In order to achieve such an ambitious Agenda, the necessary participation of all was agreed upon: governments, businesses, civil society and citizens from all over the world. Its strength comes from the universal nature of the agreement and the ambition of its 169 goals. Achieving them requires an unprecedented effort from all sectors of society, and business has an important role to play. Achieving the SDGs requires the combined efforts of the public sector, business, investors and civil society.

For the first time, the United Nations recognizes companies as a fundamental agent for the achievement of its Global Goals: "Business activity, private investment and innovation are the great engines of productivity, inclusive economic growth and job creation.... We urge all companies to use innovation and creativity to solve problems related to sustainable development", the international organization stated.
