Our contribution to the global agenda

We are framing our Creating Shared Value agenda closely with the United Nations 2030 Agenda for

Sustainable Development. Having had the opportunity to participate in shaping the 17 Sustainable

Development Goals (SDGs), the private sector has also assumed responsibility towards delivering

those goals.

We have integrated the SDGs into our CSV approach, which allows us to identify those goals where

we can add most value. We have mapped our material issues against the SDGs to help us do this.

Driven by our company purpose to enhance quality of life and contribute to a healthier future, we

have defined three overarching ambitions, which will guide our work towards achieving our 2020

commitments and supporting the achievement of the SDGs. These ambitions are to:

Enable healthier and happier lives:

this will include helping 50 million children lead healthier lives;

Help develop thriving, resilient communities:

this will include helping to improve 30 million

livelihoods in communities directly connected to our business activities; and

Steward resources for future generations:

this will include striving for zero environmental

impact in our operations.

These ambitions stem from the recognition that we live in an interconnected world where our

futures are inextricably linked.

We will leverage our scale to help meet these ambitions. However, achieving the SDGs will only be

possible through more effective and dynamic partnerships at local, national and international levels.

We strive to play our part and urge others to join this collective effort. We look forward to working

with civil society, governments and others in making this a reality.
