Sustainable development goals

Sustainable Development Goals

Die 17 Sustainable Development Goals der Vereinten Nationen.

The Nölken sustainability strategy includes both short-term annual targets and long-term targets which we are striving to achieve by 2030 and which are regularly defined.

The goals are allocated to the three areas of activity of products, environment and people and contribute to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the principles of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) provide the foundation for our sustainability strategy.
