Flag raised in support of UN Sustainable Development Goals

We’ve raised the SDG flag next tor our Manor House to show our support for the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Howbery Business Park, along with the HR Wallingford Group of which it is part, is committed to integrating the SDGs into its operations.

This September will mark eight years since the world embraced the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Howbery Business Park is joining hundreds of businesses, government departments, and civil society organisations in a global movement to fly an SDG flag to spread awareness of the SDGs and mobilise stakeholders for the 2030 agenda.

The SDGs, also known as the Global Goals, reflect a shared objective and ambition across all countries to end poverty and hunger everywhere, to combat inequalities within and among countries, to build peaceful, just, and inclusive societies, to protect human rights and promote gender equality of women and girls, and to ensure the lasting protection of the planet and its natural resources by 2030.

The 17 Goals are supported by 169 targets and 232 indicators, enabling progress to be prioritised and tracked.
