JOINING THE UN SDG’S
The United Nations General Assembly (UN) has great plans for all of us and encourage companies, brands and people to be part of their 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) designed to be a "blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all”.
The 17 SDGs are an urgent call for action by all countries - developed and developing - in a global partnership. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.
The 17 SDGs are intended to be achieved by the year 2030 and of course the support of “companies with soul” to achieve them is essential.
Here in Barner we think this is an amazing initiative and we want to be part of it.
HOW ARE WE GOING TO DO IT
We are going to focus our efforts on the SDGs that we think we can have a higher impact and those are the following
3. GOOD HEALTH AND WELLBEING
Our mission is to empower the life of digital generations with functional, creative, and innovative products. We want to help you to have a more “conscious digital life” and also improve your wellbeing with our products.
8. DECENT WORK AND ECONOMIC GROWTH
There are over 500 million people living in developing countries with near vision impairment due to the lack of access to reading glasses.
This is one of the biggest global health problems & economic problems.
By giving a pair of reading glasses to people in need, we will enable a person to work again, read again, and perform daily tasks again.
We are making our contribution to this SDG by donating prescription reading glasses through restoringvision.org – the largest nonprofit provider of new reading glasses to people living in impoverished communities around the world.READ MORE
15. LIFE ON LANDWith nowadays accelerated population growth we need to be more conscious than ever with the earth. We are working hard to be as sustainable as possible with our products and we have a target to become a carbon-neutral company.
We are going to plant a tree with Tree Nation for every single order submitted. This is our way to contribute to thIs SDG.READ MORE
17. PARTNERSHIP FOR THE GOALS
As the African proverb says “if you want to walk fast, walk alone. If you want to walk far, walk together.” This is why we want to go hand in hand with the companies supporting us on our B2B channel so we can multiply the impact to build a better world together.
