DAVINES CONTRIBUTES TO THE CHALLENGE LAUNCHED BY THE UNITED NATIONS FOR THE FUTURE OF THE PLANET
In September 2015, the governments of the 193 member states of the United Nations signed the 2030 Agenda, a shared plan for sustainable development to be achieved within 15 years, laid out in 17 objectives named SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals).

The 2030 Agenda extended a call to action and collaboration to all, from governments to individual citizens, and businesses were asked directly to focus their creative energy and innovation on contributing to sustainable development and the wellbeing of people and the planet.
Davines decided to respond to this invitation.

A CORPORATE STRATEGY IN LINE WITH THE SDGs
With 10 years left to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)*, the Davines Group has chosen to further its commitment by adopting the SDG Action Manager, an innovative tool that makes it possible to monitor, inspire and increase the company’s contribution to achieving the SDGs.
Launched in January 2020, the SDG Action Manager was developed by B Lab and the United Nations Global Compact to give companies around the world the opportunity to set clear and dynamic SDG targets, to compare themselves with other companies in the same industry, and to take significant action that can benefits everyone. By introducing common standards for measuring the company’s SDG footprint, which was previously a matter of speculation, this tool brings greater transparency to a field that is increasingly exposed to the risk of “SDG washing”.
Enthusiastically welcomed by the B Corp community, the SDG Action Manager measures companies’ contribution to each of the 17 goals through a questionnaire divided into six sections (business model, internal operations, supply chain, collective action, risk level).
The results achieved by the Davines Group, shown in the graph on page 18, confirm the company’s concrete contribution to each SDG, identifying new activities to implement and highlighting the goals that require greater focus.
The Davines Group’s highly positive experience with the SDG Action Manager has inspired it to encourage every company to use this tool. The Davines Group has always felt a responsibility to contribute to the global effort advocated by the 2030 Agenda, not only by participating in the achievement of its goals, but also by inspiring others to do the same, conscious that sustainable development can only generate shared and lasting prosperity for everyone through collective responsibility.
RESULTS OF THE DAVINES GROUP’S CONTRIBUTION TO THE SDGs ACCORDING TO THE SDG ACTION MANAGER
SDG 17 – Partnership for the Goal, does not have its own module. Due to its cross-cutting nature, actions relevant to companies are integrated in some of the other 16 modules.
