In 2015, the United Nations launched 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and tackle climate change by 2030.
The UN SDGs provide a blueprint for human progress and a clear call to action for businesses to contribute to a better future.
The COVID-19 crisis has posed a huge challenge to society and has led to a reversal of progress on a number of SDGs.
Digital technology can help accelerate progress towards delivering the SDGs as society builds back better.
Black Ires is committed to playing our role and we believe we can increase the speed and scale of delivery across a wide number of SDGs through leveraging our knowledge, services, and through partnering.
We have identified two priority SDGs that will enable us and our partners to find lasting solutions to social, economic and environmental challenges and thereby accelerate the delivery of many other SDGs.
SDG9: We want everyone – whoever they are and wherever they live – to have access to reliable and affordable online community.
SDG17: We are building new models of cooperation between businesses and civil society to deliver process and scale.
