United Nations – Sustainable Development

According to the United Nations, a Sustainable Development agenda was set in 2015 providing a blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet. The United Nations created 17 Sustainable Development Goals which target areas such as poverty, hunger, lack of education, climate action, and more. (United Nations, n.d, Department of Economic and Social Affairs & Sustainable Development, New York, USA, THE 17 GOALS | Sustainable Development (un.org)).

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries – developed and developing – in a global partnership. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand.

SDW has recognized the importance of Environmental and Social Governance and is fully committed to complying with the UN Sustainable Goals of Quality Education (Goal No. 4) & Responsible Consumption & Production (Goal No. 12).

Our Corporate Social Responsibility – “Kaya Project”

The Kaya Project is a project created to educate the children of the Tuloy Orphanage Foundation. Through our employees and facilities, we are providing a day program wherein we educate the children on woodwork machinery and allow them to assemble furniture. The construction industry offers a vast range of opportunities and provides a strong career path and we are proud to provide them with an insight into this.

In conjunction with our program, we are recognizing genuine talent and interest from the children and are providing apprenticeship opportunities for post-school education. Check out our Tuloy Orphanage Summer Workshop Program.

Our Environmental / Sustainability Program – “Green Initiatives’’

Our waste strategy is firmly focused on reducing waste production and diverting as much of our waste from landfill as possible. The following four strategies outline our approach.

  1. Introducing a new sustainable approach to both construction and fabrication
  2. Educating our Workforce
  3. Producing “secondary life” furniture
  4. Working closely with our strategic suppliers and subcontractors

SDW is committed to improving our internal systems and we have created yearly KPI’s to set our company standards.
