Aware of our social role, we have embarked on a journey to guide the organization and our business activities in the direction defined by the 17 SDGs, while contributing to affirming the principles set out in the Global Compact, to which we are a Participant.
In order to make the integration between our business goals and the UN’s SDGs more effective, we have chosen the SDGs that are most closely related to our activities. So we defined Sesa’s 7 Priority Sustainability Goals, the specific sustainable development goals to which we committed in our business strategy and in every sustainability program.
