Sharing benefits in Senegal
In 2015, world leaders committed to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which set out 17 prioritised areas ranging from ending poverty, ensuring access to energy, protection of ecosystems, addressing climate change and responsible working practices.
Although all SDGs may not be relevant to every company, we recognise a responsibility to look at our activities to identify both where our business adds value for society and where we may need to mitigate for potential negative impacts across environmental, social and governance (ESG) related issues.
In June 2016, we commissioned a review based on the SDGs to identify where relevant, any of our activities which could impact on or support any of these goals. This helped to inform our approach to delivering benefits for our stakeholders in Senegal and is set out in the three strands shown below.
