Our contribution to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) builds on a mapping made in 2019/20, when we also assessed the possibilities for strengthening our positive contribution and minimising the risk of negative impacts in our sphere of influence. We considered both our own activities upon which we have a direct influence, and how our activities indirectly impact the SDGs throughout our value chain. We used SDG Lens, a self-assessment tool developed by DNV GL (leading, independent certification body).
