ALIGNing with sDgs
The UN established 17 collective goals as a blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.
At its core, sustainable development is about inclusive and clean growth; prosperity without exploitation.
The 17 goals are interconnected and address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate change, peace and justice. It is extremely important that we achieve them all by 2030.
However, SMEs are still far from reaching them.
Greener EU helps organizations and businesses set specific targets and develop innovative strategies to operate sustainably, resulting in:
Positive social, environmental and cultural impact
Increase in funding opportunities
Increase in demand for your services
Increase in potential target groups
In line with new regulations and avoiding fines
Setting an example for surrounding communities
EU supports the 17 SDGs, as a global leader in climate and environmental measures, consumer protection, and workers’ rights.
The European Green Deal is a new growth strategy aiming to transform the EU into a fair and prosperous society, with a modern, resource-efficient and competitive economy where there are no net emissions of greenhouse gases by 2050 and where economic growth is decoupled from resource use.
At Greener EU we are passionate about making this vision a reality, using our knowledge and experience to help organizations and businesses align and develop according to the objectives defined by the UN and EU. Acting on these goals in your work, you can capitalize on the momentum by taking steps toward a better world for future generations.
the european green deal
Through its cohesion policy, the European Union works to reduce disparities in the levels of development, growth and quality of life in European regions. Known as Europe 2020 strategy, it encourages initiatives with innovative, sustainable, and inclusive practices and impact.
While most of the funds designated to reduce these disparities are managed nationally, the EU and Member States believe that regional development can be improved through cooperation across borders.
Financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), the Interreg Europe project was therefore designed to facilitate exchange of practices and ideas between regional and local public authorities and other players of regional relevance across Europe, about ways of improving public policies, and thereby finding solutions for their own citizens.
sustainable management of CULTURAL HERITAGE
One of our core objectives is based on the recognition that rights relating to cultural heritage are inherent in the right to participate in cultural life, as defined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
The responsibility towards cultural heritage lies on both individuals and the collective. For that reason, it is important to spread awareness that the end goals of the conservation of cultural heritage and its sustainable use are human development and quality of life.
Our work contributes to realizing the framework presented in the Faro Convention concerning:
– the role of cultural heritage in the construction of a peaceful and democratic society, and in the processes of sustainable development and the promotion of cultural diversity;
– greater synergy of competencies among all the public, institutional and private actors concerned.
