The Tata group is among the 17 global companies, showcased in the Future of Spaceship Earth report, who are driving progress on UN Global Goals. The report highlights the group's efforts to achieve the goal of 'no poverty'

Published in September 2016, the ‘Future of Spaceship Earth' report highlights 17 global companies that are at the forefront in driving progress on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) or Global Goals. The 17 SDGs are a call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure peace and prosperity for all by 2030.

The Tata group collaborated with DNV GL to bring out the report, which examines whether the world is on course to achieve the SDGs by 2030, and what business can do to lead the charge. Each company featured in the report is a signatory to the UN Global Compact, an initiative to encourage businesses worldwide to adopt sustainable and socially responsible policies and thus contribute to a sustainable future. The report highlights insights gained by each company in their progress to achieve one of the 17 SDGs.

The Tata group shares insights on the potential of business to tackle poverty, the first and most critical among the SDGs. Read about it here.
