Benissa. October 22nd, 2019.
On the 4th anniversary of the adoption of the 2030 Agenda and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), VAPF Group is joining the #aliadosdelosODS campaign to raise awareness of these United Nations Goals, in collaboration with the Spanish Global Compact Network, an initiative to which it belongs. The objective is to contribute, through its alignment with the SDGs, as a platform to boost awareness of the Goals so that people know and begin to work on them.
In 2016, VAPF Group joined the UN Global Compact initiative, 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, in order to find new business opportunities, improves relations with its stakeholders, and promotes innovation.

In this respect, VAPF Group has established a series of commitments and good practices aligned with its strategy. Here we highlight the implementation of innovation in our developments as a measure to combat climate change and its effects, to guarantee both quality and stable employment to promote inclusive, sustained and sustainable economic growth, the various actions to guarantee a healthy life and promote well-being for all ages, and finally, the development of alliances to strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the Global Alliance for Sustainable Development.
Boosting company contribution to sustainable development
Four years ago, the 193 member states of the United Nations General Assembly including Spain, unanimously approved Agenda 2030 with its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). “Leaving no one behind” is the central concept of the agreement. The SDGs propose to end poverty and hunger, reducing inequalities and tackling urgent issues such as climate change.
In order to achieve this ambitious Agenda, it was agreed that everyone needed to participate including governments, business, 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 companies has a very important role to play in this. Achieving the SDGs requires a combination of momentum provided by the public sector, companies, investors, and civil society.
For the first time, the United Nations recognizes companies as key players in achieving its Global Objectives stating: “Private enterprise, investment, and innovation are the major drivers of productivity, inclusive economic growth, and job creation. We urge all companies to apply innovation and their creativity to solve problems related to sustainable development.”
