Supporting the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals
In September 2015, the United Nations adopted 17 Sustainable Development Goals to build off of the Millennium Development Goals and achieve an international commitment to economic, social, and environmental sustainable development by 2030. Since then, over 3,800 multi-stakeholder partnerships and voluntary commitments have been registered by stakeholders devoted to supporting the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals.
Individual member companies of the Beverage Industry Environmental Roundtable (BIER) have pledged their commitment to the SDGs, and some have designed formal approaches to implement and support the SDGs on a more formal scale.
Collectively as BIER, our work streams support the following sustainable development goals: SDG 6 (Clean Water and Sanitation), SDG 7 (Affordable and Clean Energy), and SDG 13 (Climate Action).
