FCC Group joins the SDG campaign promoted by the UN Global Compact in Spain

With a view to publicly reinforcing the value of its commitment and efforts to raise awareness among its stakeholders, FCC Group has joined the #apoyamoslosODS campaign, launched by the UN Global Compact Spain, an initiative to which it belongs, with a view to disseminating these Goals set out by the United Nations. The aim is to serve, as part of its own commitment to the SDGs, as a loudspeaker and to achieve a multiplier effect, helping them to become more widely known and worked on via the communication materials to be disseminated on the corresponding channels. 

FCC signed up to the United Nations Global Compact, the world's largest corporate sustainability initiative, on 7 May 2007. Since the approval of the 2030 Agenda in 2015, in addition to its commitment to promoting the Ten Principles, it has strained to align its corporate management approach with the SDGs, generating new business opportunities, improving relations with stakeholders and promoting innovation.

To this end, FCC Group strives to improve people's quality of life, responding to their expectations and the needs of their surrounding area, harnessing its consolidated track record as a socially responsible company. FCC's commitment to the 2030 Agenda and contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals; to the Paris Agreement on climate change; to the United Nations Global Compact and to the transition towards a circular economy model, are just a few examples of the company's roadmap when it comes to overcoming the challenges of climate change and socioeconomic inequalities on a global scale. Furthermore, the FCC Group is committed to making a collective effort for cooperation and solidarity to make progress in achieving more resilient, fair and inclusive societies, leaving no one behind, convinced of the role that the company can play in supporting the economic reactivation, generating quality jobs in the communities in which it operates. This year, FCC has continued to explore new frontiers on its sustainable path, considering the needs and expectations of stakeholders and placing citizens at the heart of the business.

Through this type of action, the UN Global Compact Spain and its member organisations seek to contribute to the 2030 Agenda and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals; in these times of crisis and uncertainty, these efforts represent the formula for creating the sustainable future that the world needs. 

Encouraging companies to contribute towards sustainable development

It has been seven years since the 2030 Agenda with its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) was approved unanimously at the United Nations General Assembly by the 193 participating States, including Spain. "Leaving no one behind" is the motto of the agreement. The SDGs propose ending poverty and hunger, reducing inequalities, and tackling urgent challenges such as climate change. 

To achieve such an ambitious Agenda, it was agreed that participation from everyone is necessary: governments, businesses, civil society and citizens around the world. The agreement's strength comes from its universal nature and its ambitious 169 goals. Achieving them requires an unprecedented effort on the part of all sectors of society, and businesses have a very important role to play in this endeavour. This means commitment from the public sector, businesses, investors and civil society.

We are living in unprecedented times, marked by major global challenges such as the climate crisis, the COVID-19 pandemic and the increase in the number of conflicts worldwide. This critical situation threatens to jeopardise the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
Now more than ever, it is important to mobilise and take action in favour of sustainable development to continue having a positive impact on people and the planet.
