Enerland attends the “Financial Profitability and Agenda 2030” seminar organized by Global Compact Spain, the Development Institute in Aragón, and Ibercaja Foundation.
On October 5th, the “Financial Profitability and Agenda 2030” seminar was held in Zaragoza, organized by Global Compact Spain, the Development Institute in Aragón, and Ibercaja Foundation. Convinced that financial profitability is necessary to achieve a more sustainable production, the report “Financial Profitability and Sustainability” was shared as part of the seminar, during Financial Education Week. To close the event, several businesses located in Zaragoza, such as Begner, shared their cases of success, analyzing the SDGs that they considered most strategic to their activity.
Nowadays, the commitment to SDGs is not enough, since the progress is being too slow and unambitious: Global Compact has shared a petition for the companies to deepen their analysis capacity and make an extra effort, signing pledges with realistic goals and deadlines. According to their statement, about 15% of the proposed objectives in the Agenda 2030 are on track to be fulfilled, but most of the others have slowed down their progress or even reversed it because of recent crisis, according to data.
