Unity Trust Bank aligns its practises to the United Nations Sustainable Development GoalsAnnouncements Published: January 25, 2021 3:22 pm
Sustainability and corporate responsibility are ‘must haves’ for any business, and here at Unity Trust Bank we align our operations and practices to the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
This global framework for achieving a better and more sustainable future was launched in 2015 when the UN called on governments, businesses and societies around the world to help end poverty, protect the planet’s future and improve the lives of everyone.
The 17 goals were adopted by all UN member states as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
Unity’s vision has always been to create a better society; we help organisations to develop and improve facilities and services across key themes of the SDGs – health and wellbeing; community spaces and services; education, skills and employment; financial inclusion and the environment.
Paula Rogers, Corporate Responsibility Manager at Unity Trust Bank said: “We are committed to helping small and medium-sized businesses to grow and create training and employment opportunities, enable the provision of health care services and provide housing to vulnerable members of society – all of which are aligned to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
“Every loan we make contributes towards this framework and addresses Unity’s overall vision of delivering positive social change.”
In 2020 the UN called for a ‘Decade of Action’ to accelerate the global effort to deliver the goals by 2030.
