SDGs Matrix

Report issues in accordance of SDGs matrix

On 25 September 2015 the 70° United Nations General Assembly reached an historic agreement which defines a global action programme focusing on 17 sustainable development goals to be reached in various areas, among which the end of extreme poverty, food security, reduce inequality and injustice, climate changes, health, sustainable consumption and production, economic growth and increased employment, development of infrastructures, safeguard of natural resources, gender equality.

This action programme boosts the commitments defined by the Millennium Development Goals, and can be implemented through a multi-stakeholders approach with the contribution of all the global institutions and the active participation of each individual component of society. The business world can contribute and strengthen the initiatives of government institutions to transform those goals into concrete initiatives capable of creating effective and lasting changes.

Barilla has identified areas of action to account for its commitments and results, such as the publication of the “Good for You, Good for the Planet” Annual Report.

The identification of Sustainable Development Objectives toward which Barilla contributes with its activities is based on the SDG Industry Matrix – Food Beverage and Consumer Goods model developed by UN Global Compact and KPMG, available to the address https://www.unglobalcompact.org/library/3111
