Prime employer Diageo is a sustainable Business Avenger

Diageo is one of 17 global companies joining forces under a coalition called the 'Business Avengers' to highlight the crucial role businesses have to play in hitting the targets of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (Global Goals) by 2030.

With a set time left to deliver the Global Goals for Sustainable Development – agreed to by every UN nation in 2015 – Diageo is proud to join the group companies who have pledged to champion the important aims.

Diageo tweeted "As one of 17 global companies joining forces under a new coalition called the 'Business Avengers' we're proud to highlight the crucial role businesses have to play in hitting the targets of the 17 #SustainableDevelopmentGoals by 2030."

Accelerating progress before Global Day of Action

The goal of Diageo and the further Business Avengers is to accelerate progress before the Global Day of Action, where global leaders will return and report on the steps they have taken to advance sustainability, prosperity, equality and opportunity for all.

Diageo's sustainable role in society

Diageo's priorities are guided by the issues that are most material to its business and the value chain Diageo creates. From the farmers who grow the company's ingredients, to its employees and contractors, to the consumers who buy its brands, Diageo wants to make sure it is a positive influence on society and the environment.

Diageo's Sustainability and Responsibility targets provide a framework to measure and track its progress, as well as ensure the business is actively contributing to the achievement of the UN Global Goals.

"We believe one of the best ways we can contribute to communities is by engaging others to become advocates for causes important to them and their stakeholders. Joining forces with governments, NGOs, suppliers, local communities and our consumers means we can make an even greater contribution to socio-economic development around the world," Diageo concludes.
