SDG FLAG DAY & GLOBAL WEEK TO ACT4SDGs 2022
The United Nations Global Compact is a voluntary sustainability initiative, based on individual Company CEO commitments to align their business activities with global efforts, in the areas of human rights, labour, the environment, and anti-corruption. More than 11,000 organisations in 156 countries have joined this initiative, and in November 2017, MBP became one of them.
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Global Compact Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries – developed and developing – in a global partnership. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.
Seven years ago, the SDGs were adopted to achieve a more inclusive, equitable and sustainable society by 2030. The SDG Flag Day campaign was launched in the Netherlands and has grown rapidly over the past two years. Hundreds of companies, government agencies, civil society organization and schools are raising the SDG Flag and celebrating the adoption of the SDGs.
At the same time, the UN SDG Action Campaign and ActNow have joined forces for the Global Week to #ACT4SDGs. ActNow is the UN campaign for individual action on climate change and sustainability. Join millions and log your actions in the Act Now app.
Every one of us can help limit global warming and take care of our planet. By making choices that have less harmful effects on the environment, we can be part of the solution and influence change.
This year, MBP Solutions is participating in a digital form and we are inviting organizations like ours to also participate and be part of a global movement in the name of #TogetherForTheSDGs.
At MBP Solutions, we work for a more sustainable world by helping industries reduce their impact on the environment (environment, economic and social are the three dimensions of sustainable development) – all year round.
We support sustainable development by optimising resource use and implementing circular business solutions. We take industrial waste and residues and divert them from landfilling to energy uses or as fertilizers in agriculture, and we upgrade and qualify residues for use in animal feed to help reduce the pressure on limited natural resources.
We join efforts with our suppliers, customers, employees through UN’s SDG Ambition Accelerator and Climate Ambition Accelerator Programs and different stakeholders to build a more sustainable world.
MBP’s Sustainability Approach
Since 2017 MBP Solutions LTD has been committed to the UN Global Compact corporate responsibility initiative and its principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. In December 2020, MBP Solutions submitted the latest Communication on Progress.
This year, MBP joined the Communication on Progress Early Adopter Programme, taking our sustainability progress to the next level, as part of our commitment to transparently disclose our implementation of the Ten principles and contribution to the SDGs.
Sustainability has been part of our ideological backbone since the beginning, as our organisation captures and delivers value in economic, environmental and social terms.
Our business brings to life the concepts of industrial ecology and circular economy by materialising the idea that the waste stream of one industry can be used as a key resource by another.
The report focuses on our performance, challenges and opportunities and it covers MBP’s entire organisation, including administrative offices, industrial facilities and sourcing operations.
