Companies have a lot of work to do with SDGs

It’s especially worrying to see the unawareness companies have in general. A recent inform carried out by Infojobs points out how only a 13% of Spanish companies have properly integrated SDGs. In fact, one in every three of them aren’t even familiar with them. Something that affects especially those business with less than 50 employees; only a 29% of those surveyed within this kind of companies have a proper knowledge about Sustainable Development Goals.

Precisely, both companies and governments share the biggest responsibility when it comes to changing the current situation and getting close to what Agenda 2030 marks. The pandemic has decreased the expected progress for Spain in terms of SDGs, since equality and employment indexes haven’t fulfilled the planned objectives.

New Tandem compromises with developing labors that build a better society. For that to happen, having a healthy, habitable place for the following generations is the key. It’s crucial to remember that, as of today, there is no planet B.
