Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

Our Sustainable Development Goals

In 2019, MAKEEN Energy started working with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals – also known as the SDGs and the Global Goals. It is our purpose to deliver responsible energy solutions for people and planet, and as a global organisation we know that we have the potential to make a positive difference. Using the SDGs to address sustainability matters, we have the chance to contribute to an international project.

Focusing our efforts on 4 goals

The SDGs count 17 goals that are equally relevant and important, but we do not believe that we can work dedicatedly with all of them. That is why we have chosen to focus on those that match our organisation, products and services – and they are: goals no. 8, 9, 12 and 17.

By working with these goals, we can make a difference simply by adjusting and optimising what we already do. In that way, the SDGs both support our sustainability agenda and our business results.

A global sustainability project

Our employees handle different jobs at different locations all around the world. They are the ones who know our operations and supply chain inside out, simply because they are part of it. That is why we believe that it is important to involve our employees when working with the SDGs.

Considering and incorporating the SDGs is an extensive and ongoing project, and we need to take it one step at a time. Right now, we are just in the very beginning of it, but in time we will expand our efforts and continuously include more people and parts of our business.

What are the Sustainable Development Goals?

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They were adopted by the United Nations in 2015 and function as a recommendation for all 193 UN Member States until 2030.

The SDGs include 17 goals (and 169 targets) that address global challenges related to, for example, poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity as well as peace and justice.

Decent work and economic growth

Goal 8: Decent work and economic growth

This goal focuses on promoting sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all.

At MAKEEN Energy, we have employees all around the world, and we want good and safe working conditions for all of them.

Industry, innovation and infrastructure

Goal 9: Industry, innovation and infrastructure

The aim of this goal is to build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialisation and foster innovation.

As a company that develops and delivers energy solutions, our production as well as both the development and distribution of our products are key to our business.

Responsible consumption and production

Goal 12: Responsible consumption and production

This goal emphasises the importance of ensuring sustainable consumption and production patterns.

Our production facilities manufacture solutions for the energy industry, and both during and after the production, as well as in our offices, materials matter.

Partnerships for the goals

Goal 17: Partnerships for the goals

With this goal, the objective is to work together to strengthen the means of implementation and revitalise the global partnership for sustainable development.

We have suppliers, customers and other stakeholders across all continents, and sometimes cooperation opens doors that we would never be able to on our own.
