MEII and the UN Sustainable Development Goals

 

MEII has been an active member of the United Nations Global Compact (UNCG) since March 2015. UNCG is a strategic policy initiative for organizations and businesses that are committed to aligning their operations and strategies with 10 universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment, and anti-corruption.

 

On September 25th 2015, countries adopted a set of goals to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all as part of a new sustainable development agenda. Each goal has specific targets to be achieved over the next 15 years.
