Aligned to Global Goals
We have chosen to align our sustainability strategy to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). Launched in late 2015, the SDG platform is now recognised as an ideal basis upon which to build a robust and balanced Sustainability Strategy.
The World Port Sustainability Program (WPSP) encourages industry-wide action in pursuit of the SDGs. Whilst it is recognised that not every port can do everything across every SDG, we support this industry direction and have ensured our sustainability strategy addresses relevant SDGs for the regional and New Zealand context.
We are focused on what we can achieve locally to respond to global challenges like climate change, environmental issues and prosperity to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.
About the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
At the United Nations summit meeting in September 2015, world leaders adopted 17 global goals (and 169 targets) as a set of universal goals that aim to address the urgent environmental, political and economic challenges facing our world. These are known as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), as illustrated below. You can learn how the port’s sustainability performance will be guided by this goals in our Sustainability Strategy and Action Plan (click on link to the right).
