Sustainable Development Goals

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) are seventeen sustainable development goals for a better, liveable world in 2030. Members of the United Nations (UN), including the Netherlands, have committed to the SGDs.

17 SDG's

The 17 goals cover a wide variety of themes, such as climate, health, poverty, biodiversity, equality and rights for all. According to the UN, all the goals need to be met in 2030 in order to ensure a liveable and sustainable world. Although they are primarily aimed at governments, businesses and financial institutions are expected to contribute as well.

We focus on 3 SDG’s

We wish to contribute to achieving these goals and because long-term value creation is important to us, we actively endorse these goals. Based on its ‘Sustainable Living. Together’ vision, Achmea has selected three SDGs to which we want to make the most impactful contribution. These are closely aligned with our company’s core activities: Good health and well-being (SDG 3), Sustainable cities and communities (SDG 11) and Climate action (SDG 13). We explain how we contribute to these goals in our annual report.
