Focus on global goals

Sustainable development

In 2016, BayWa aligned its sustainability management system with selected objectives from the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations (UN) to address global opportunities and risks more consistently. The 17 sustainable goals are valid for all states and serve to secure a sustainable development for the world. The goals are supposed to be reached till 2030.

For BayWa’s contribution the results of a materiality analysis serve as the basis for the company’s sustainability strategy and reporting. The key goals for the success of BayWa’s business, and for its stakeholders, are "ensure sustainable production, trade and consumption" (12), "promote health" (3), "develop new global partnerships" (17) and "achieve food security and sustainable agriculture" (2). All BayWa relevant goals can be found in the current Sustainability Report 2018 (p.11).
