Sustainable Development program [NFPS]
The table shown above charts the ways in which “Writing the Future, Together” contributes to the UN SDGs. To create it, BIC evaluated its contribution to the targets defined by the UN for its 17 major goals. The Group contributes mainly to two goals, in particular through the products that it manufactures and markets in more than 160 countries: SDG 8. Decent work and economic growth. BIC contributes through the development of products and production modes that favor the efficient use of resources, including recycled materials (see § 3.2.2). SDG 12. Responsible consumption and production. BIC contributes through the Company’s eco-design program, which provides consumers with information to help them make their purchasing choices, and through its monitoring and compliance program, which ensures that the products it markets are safe and comply with health and environmental standards (see § 3.2). Within the direct scope of its operations or its sphere of direct influence ‒ by making simple, reliable products that meet essential needs available to everyone, undertaking initiatives that provide support for its team members, offering various products and
programs to promote access to education, reducing the environmental impacts of its factories, ensuring respect for Human Rights in its own factories and by its suppliers and subcontractors, and through the actions of its Corporate Foundation ‒ the Group also contributes to the following UN Sustainable Development Goals:
End poverty; SDG 1. Good health and well-being; SDG 3.
Quality education; SDG 4. Gender equality; SDG 5.
Clean water and sanitation; SDG 6. Affordable and clean energy; SDG 7. Industry, innovation and infrastructure; SDG 9. Reduced inequalities; SDG 10. Climate action; SDG 13. Aquatic life; SDG 14. Life on land; SDG 15. Peace, justice and strong institutions. SDG 16.
