Sustainable Development Goals
Global Sustainable Markets is not just a brand name. It stands for everything we believe in as:
- An environmentally responsible 21st Century business
- A socially responsible 21st Century business
- A responsibly governed 21st Century business
We have aligned our high-level GSM ESG strategy to a set of established and subscribed Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as the Global Goals.
These were adopted by the United Nations in 2015 as a universal call to action to protect the planet, life and quality life (.
GSM Holdings ESG (environmental, social, and governance) Phase 1 Framework incorporates four key Sustainable Development Goals into our operational model, as follows:
