Sustainable Development Goals

The Sustainable Development Goals are a call for action by all countries – poor, rich and middle-income – to promote prosperity while protecting the planet. They recognize that ending poverty must go hand-in-hand with strategies that build economic growth and address a range of social needs including education, health, social protection, and job opportunities, while tackling climate change and environmental protection. (17 Goals to Transform our World)
At Lantinga Vita, we believe that business can be a force for good. That means having an impact where it counts most. The UN Sustainable Development Goals provide a framework for evidence-based decision making. Measuring our impact and setting clear objectives is a first step in a long journey towards preserving our planet, while ensuring economic growth and prosperity for all. We are committed to joining forces with not only the best in the world, but the best for the world.
