Unicaja Banco joins the communication campaign #aliadosdelosODS, promoted by the Global Compact Network Spain, to promote the dissemination of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) included in the 2030 Agenda, adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations (UN).

 

The financial institution joins this campaign within the framework of its Corporate Social Responsibility policy, and in collaboration with the Global Compact Network Spain, to which the bank belongs, on the fourth anniversary of the adoption of the 2030 Agenda. This campaign seeks to contribute to raise awareness of the SDGs among all the stakeholders.

 

Unicaja Banco joined the United Nations Global Compact in 2013 and the 2030 Agenda, in 2017. The bank also promotes the Ten Principles of the Global Compact and has worked to align its corporate management with the SDGs, to find new business opportunities, improve the relationship with stakeholders and to promote innovation.

 

In this sense, Unicaja Banco has established a set of commitments and good practices aligned with its strategy. For instance, it is worth to mention the Edufinet Project, with nearly 15 years developing financial education programs and promoted together with Fundación Unicaja. The goal of the project is to increase the financial literacy of citizens and to promote financial education through courses and seminars, publications and several Internet portals. Edufinet has a general portal (www.edufinet.com), with contents on economics and finances for a general audience, and two specific portals: one for business owners and entrepreneurs (Edufiemp) and another one for a young audience (Edufinext). This way it supports the SDG of Quality Education.

 

The bank is also committed to equal opportunities (Goal of Gender Equality), and it promotes actions which seek to boost the access, development and promotion of women in power roles.

 

It also has an environmental and climate change policy, integrated within its CSR strategy, which sets certain basic principles of action in terms of environment and in the identification and management of the risks associated to the climate change and its effects (SDG of Climate Action).

 

Unicaja Banco reaffirms every year its commitment to the UN Global Compact and to the Global Compact Network Spain, showing its support to the achievement of its objectives and goals, including the SDGs. The bank participates, among other initiatives, in the International Center for Training of Authorities and Leaders (Cifal) in Malaga, a project of the United Nations Institute for Professional Training and Research (Unitar). Building alliances is another priority goal for the institution.

 

Four years ago, the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted unanimously by its 193 participating states, the 2030 Agenda with its 17 SDGs. To achieve them, the participation of governments, companies, civil society and citizens was deemed necessary. It is worth to mention that, for the first time, the UN recognized companies as key agents for the achievement of its global goals.
