Sustainable development goals
We are committed to the Agenda 2030 and the objective of a sustainable future, working in line with the UN SDGs.
Contribution to SDGs and the Euskadi Basque Country Agenda 2030
Parke's Strategic Plan 2021 – 2024 is directed at contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals and is aligned with the Euskadi Basque Country Agenda 2030
To achieve this, eight strategic lines have been defined which will have a direct impact on 14 of the 17 UN SDGs. In particular, these include «Smart and sustainable infrastructure» and «Differential services», which have a direct impact on nine of the SDGs. In addition, the strategic lines are designed to achieve equilibrium between economic, social and environmental sustainability.
SDGs 8 and 9, which refer to «Decent jobs and economic growth» and «Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure», respectively, are obtained through almost all the strategic lines. This demonstrates our commitment to sustainable development and the importance of innovation and technology in the attainment of the SDGs and the construction of a better future for everyone.
