Goldcorp and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), adopted by the United Nations and its member states, are ambitious and will require collaboration between many sectors. This new, universal set of goals aims to eradicate poverty, protect the planet and advance prosperity by 2030. The private sector and companies like ours have a critical role in meeting these objectives.

The SDGs and the Role of the Private Sector

Businesses like ours have a tremendous impact on communities. We provide local jobs and use local supply chains, which in turn creates jobs and builds human capital. We build physical and institutional infrastructure and support technology transfer. The resulting growth in products and services can have multiplier effects that improve communities’ financial sustainability.

We are committed to playing a key role in achieving the SDGs. The table below shows a snapshot of our involvement in 2017 in the areas in which we operate. It also demonstrates how this involvement ties back into the SDGs. Moving forward we will analyze where we can create the most positive impact with regards to the SDGs and generate a strategy to align this work throughout our organization.
