Shower designer and manufacturer Roman has supported the UNGC’s Flag Campaign, to raise awareness of their 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Roman is a member of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), which is the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative. On 25th September, it will be eight years since the world adopted the UNGC’s SDGs. To raise awareness of the SDGs Roman took part in the global movement working #TogetherForTheSDGs and joined the UNGC’s SDG Flag campaign.
The UNGC hope that by raising an SDG Flag, organisations will show their commitment to the Global Goals and the action that they’re already taking to combat major global challenges including climate change, gender inequality, poverty, and poor work. With only 1 in 10 people in Britain familiar with the SDGs, raising the SDG flag is essential to mobilise stakeholders for action.
David Osborne, CEO at Roman, commented: “Roman is proud to be supporting the UNGC Flag Campaign and to help create more awareness for the SDGs. We have embedded the SDGs and the Ten Principles into our activities and corporate governance – perhaps more importantly into all levels of operations and strategy. As a British Manufacturer, Roman take sustainability and CSR extremely seriously and we are proud to be a member of the prestigious and far-reaching, United Nations Global Compact Network.”
