Sustainable Development Goals

The ONU  approved in 2015  the  Agenda 2030 on Sustainable Development, an opportunity for countries and their societies to embark on a new path to improve everyone's life, leaving no one behind. The diary has  17 Sustainable Development Goals,  ranging from the elimination of poverty to the fight against climate change, education, women's equality, the defense of the environment or the design of our cities.

 

In our day to day, we are working on the following  objectives through the actions that we specify below:
