Sustainable Development Goal
In September 2015, heads of states and governments agreed to set the world on a path towards sustainable development through the adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. This agenda includes 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), which present quantitative objectives across the social, economic and environmental dimensions of sustainable development - to be achieved by 2030.
The goals provide a framework for shared action “for people, planet and prosperity”, to be implemented by “all countries and all stakeholders, acting in collaborative partnership”. As articulated in the 2030 Agenda - “never before have world leaders pledged common action and endeavor across such a broad and universal policy agenda”. 169 targets accompany the 17 goals and set out quantitative and qualitative objectives for the next 15 years. These targets are “global in nature and universally applicable, taking into account different national realities, capacities and levels of development and respecting national policies and priorities". A set of indicators and a monitoring framework will also accompany the goals.
Out of the 17 SDGs, Airport International Group selected three as a priority to work on, and defined clear indicators and actions that enable the company - as the operator of QAIA - to participate in achieving the national indicators:
SDG 6: Clean Water and Sanitation
SDG 7: Affordable and Clean Energy
SDG 13: Climate Action
Airport International Group is working to develop standard procedures for monitoring and reporting the three SDGs mentioned above.
