Gift of Bread's Alignment with UN Sustainable Development Goals
As a public benevolent institution we are proud to be contributing to Australia’s efforts to achieve the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) by 2030.
SDG's are a collection of 17 global objectives adopted by the United Nations (UN) in 2015 to eradicate poverty, protect the planet and build a peaceful and prosperous world.
The Sustainable Development Goals are a call for action by all countries – poor, rich and middle-income – to promote prosperity while protecting the planet. They recognize that ending poverty must go hand-in-hand with strategies that build economic growth and address a range of social needs including education, health, social protection, and job opportunities, while tackling climate change and environmental protection. More important than ever, the goals provide a critical framework for COVID-19 recovery.
By 2030, end all forms of malnutrition, including achieving, by 2025, the internationally agreed targets on stunting and wasting in children under 5 years of age, and address the nutritional needs of adolescent girls, pregnant and lactating women and older persons.
By 2030, reduce by one third premature mortality from non-communicable diseases through prevention and treatment and promote mental health and well-being.
By 2030, significantly reduce the number of deaths and the number of people affected and substantially decrease the direct economic losses relative to global gross domestic product caused by disasters, including water-related disasters, with a focus on protecting the poor and people in vulnerable situations.
Encourage companies, especially large and transnational companies, to adopt sustainable practices and to integrate sustainability information into their reporting cycle.
Strengthen resilience and adaptive capacity to climate-related hazards and natural disasters in all countries.
