UN Sustainable Development Goals

In September 2015, the United Nations, business leaders, civil society and citizens came together to adopt the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development – a path to achieve a better future for all. The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) lie at the heart of the agenda and serve as a call for action to tackle society’s most pressing challenges. LyondellBasell has the potential  — and responsibility — to use our scale and reach to make a positive impact across our entire value chain on the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Following our assessment of the SDGs, we’ve selected 9 goals that are most material and align best with our sustainability strategy to help address challenges such as reducing plastic waste in the environment, helping to mitigate climate change and contributing to a thriving society for our employees, the communities where we operate and the people who depend on our products.
