How Can Your Business Achieve Goal 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities?
Updated: Nov 4, 2018
Over the coming weeks, we are celebrating the benefits of the Global Goals in understanding how your business can commit to sustainability. Today, we look at Goal 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities.
Goal 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities aims to ensure all cities and places of human settlement are inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.
The achievement of Goal 11 in your business requires a detailed understanding of your business' role in the local community.
An important way in which your business can ensure it is working to achieve Goal 11 is by looking at the environmental impact of your business in the local environment and find if there is any way in which you can reduce that impact.
You can also look at the role your business plays in the preservation of cultural heritage and the acceptance of the cultural heritage of others.
Additionally, businesses of all sizes can explore how they can provide direct assistance to communities in regional areas of Australia which require further assistance in ensuring they are not left behind in the achievement of the 2030 Agenda.
The final way of committing to the achievement of Goal 11 is through donating company profits to charities working on providing technologies to people in developing countries and to charities working to support community development in developing countries.
