Grupo Nutresa and its commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGS)

The adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals established by the United Nations is a relevant topic in the global work agenda, especially in Latin America, where countries and their governments submit yearly national reports on the progress regarding their implementation. To achieve a greater contribution to the fulfillment of these goals, Grupo Nutresa has aligned its sustainability strategy with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, a 15-year plan in favor of people, the planet and prosperity. Thus, the Organization’s programs, work methodologies and metrics are intended to make progress in the accomplishment of the SDGs.

Grupo Nutresa is aware of the role of private companies in the successful fulfillment of this set of goals, and of the fact that its actions add value to the process of advancing into a natural transition toward a more sustainable development. The goals that have been prioritized by the Company, that is, those for which it can make a more effective contribution are: SDG 1 (No poverty), SDG 2 (Zero Hunger), SDG 4 (Quality education), SDG 8 (Decent work and economic growth), SDG 9 (Industry, innovation and infrastructure), SDG 12 (Responsible consumption and production), SDG 13 (Climate action), SDG 16 (Peace, justice and strong institutions), and SDG 17 (Partnerships for the goals).

The Organization has selected the following indicators to report its progress in relation to the attainment of the goals established in the agenda for 2030.
