Sustainability goals of the UN
In 2015, the United Nations published the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as its central element. The SDGs cover a wide range of social, economic and environmental development issues. Within the SDGs, protecting biodiversity and securing the livelihood of the local population are listed as priorities and objectives up to the year 2030. Through its certified and sustainable activities in the Congo Basin and the Amazon rainforest, Precious Woods makes an important contribution to these Sustainable Development Goals.
Beyond this, the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) emphasizes in its 2015 Paris Agreement that sustainable forest management is important to mitigate climate change and its impacts.
