European Sustainable Development Week from May 30 to June 5, 2018
The European Sustainable Development Week (ESDW) is an excellent opportunity to reiterate our commitment to social and environmental responsibility and organize a number of initiatives to raise awareness among our staff across the various Natixis office buildings.
This year’s theme for the European Sustainable Development Week is Transformation towards sustainable and resilient societies.
This theme embodies a number of Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and particularly some that we have decided to tackle and share with our staff: take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts (SDG N°13 ), ensure access to affordable reliable sustainable and modern energy (SDG N°7), make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable (SDG N°11) and protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss (SDG N°15).
We will be taking the opportunity of European Sustainable Development Week to raise staff awareness on non-motorized transport by organizing bike repair workshops, and also promote the circular economy with a new waste sorting system.
