In September 2015, 193 member States of the United Nations adopted 17 new Sustainable Global Goals and 169 targets to make our world more prosperous, inclusive, sustainable and resilient over the fifteen year period to 2030.

This report highlights commercial opportunities for shared value within these industries – i.e. where we see the coming together of market potential, societal demands and policy action. The opportunities to contribute to each of the 17 goals are illustrated with multiple examples of leading practices from companies in the energy and natural resource industry. 

  1. Energy for all
    Drive progress towards universal access to affordable, reliable and sustainable energy, as a key enabler for multiple Sustainable Development Goals.
  2. Zero-carbon energy
    In line with the Paris Agreement and in collaboration with Governments and other stakeholders, support the transition to net-zero carbon energy which includes a substantially higher share of renewable energy in the global energy mix and removal of fossil-fuel carbon emissions through carbon capture, storage and usage.
  3. Sustainable production
    Develop and share scalable systems to improve the resource efficiency and sustainability of production across the value chain, in order to reduce the environmental footprint of operations, while reducing cost.
  4. Community development
    Collaborate with Government, private sector and not-for-profit stakeholders to transform the socio-economic development of communities – especially those surrounding the company’s operations – going beyond compliance, local content requirements and ‘license to operate’ to achieve ‘license to lead’ in healthy, flourishing communities.
