EY’s connection with the UN Sustainable Development GoalsThe Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), as adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, aim to create a universal plan for sustainable development in the coming 15 years. The 17 SDGs and 169 targets are integrated and indivisible. Their aim is to redirect investment flows towards global developmental challenges.
To determine the suitability and relevance of the SDGs, a linkage has been made between EY’s strategic pillars (Markets, Talent and Operations), EY’s material topics and the SDGs. It is worth noting that only a few SDGs have been selected. To safeguard the relevance of our reporting, we decided to match SDGs to the areas where we have significant impact.
