In operating our business in accordance with these principles, we also seek to contribute to the fulfilment of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as agreed to by Australia and 192 other countries at the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit in September 2015. Figure 2 serves to illustrate the connection between the ICMM 10 principles and the SDGs.
