FCC celebrates the fourth anniversary of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals

FCC celebrates the fourth anniversary of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). On 25 September 2015, world leaders adopted a set of global goals to end poverty, protect the planet and assure prosperity for all as part of a new sustainable development agenda.

This is an opportunity for countries, their people and businesses to have an effective guide to minimising social, economic and environmental problems that have been globally identified. This compendium of commitments marks the global sustainability agenda through to 2030, and that is the view taken by FCC which has aligned its Policy and its Corporate Social Responsibility Master Plan with these 17 SDGs, thereby contributing, through the direct and indirect impact of its activities, to the achievement of these global agenda goals.

To celebrate this fourth anniversary, FCC supports the key initiatives launched to make all of society aware of the importance of disseminating and promoting the fulfilment of these 17 SDGs, and has also joined the #ODSéate campaign promoted by the High Commissioner for the 2030 Agenda, as well as the #AliadosDelosODS initiative promoted by Global Compact Network Spain.

International Children's Drawing Contest and the SDGs

In addition, coinciding with this celebration, FCC has launched the first edition of an international children's drawing contest for employees' sons and daughters, nieces and nephews, and grandchildren so that they can all do their bit towards saving the planet.

This event contributes to Sustainable Development Goals No. 4, Quality Education, and No. 13, Climate Action, because part of our activity is to teach and raise awareness amongst society at large, employees and their families as to the importance of a responsible use of resources and respect for the environment to improve the world in which we live and minimise the social, economic and environmental problems identified.
