September 2021 marked the sixth anniversary of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) identified in the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda. Countries around the world signed up to this global commitment, which is based on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Paris Agreement and defines a series of ambitious yet inalienable goals designed to protect the planet’s health and ensure a safe and prosperous existence for its seven-billion-plus inhabitants, especially the most vulnerable.
In recognition of the fact that these goals can only be achieved through engagement and specific action not only on the part of governments, but also civil society and the private sector, Ineco has integrated them into Atenea, its corporate strategy. To this end, every year since 2019 the company has drawn up a dedicated action plan for the 2030 Agenda, based on five action areas: equality, conciliation, sustainability, solidarity and compliance.
Additionally, in May 2021 Ineco created and launched its 2030 Agenda Commissioner, which reports to the President´s Office Directorate. The role of this unit is to coordinate all of the areas of the company that are involved in the 2030 Agenda, draw up Ineco’s annual 2030 Agenda plan, and monitor the progress of its aims.
