The United Nations sustainable development goals

At Oerlikon, we affirm both the ideals and the necessities of each of the 17 United Nations SDGs. Given the nature of our business, processes and operations, we have a greater impact on certain SDGs compared to others.

According to where we can make the greatest difference, both in our practices and in our impact on the planet and its people, whether globally or in the communities in which we work, we have identified eight SDGs: Goal 3 Good Health And Well-Being, Goal 5 Gender Equality, Goal 7 Affordable and Clean Energy, Goal 8 Decent Work and Economic Growth, Goal 9 Industry, Innovation And Infrastructure, Goal 12 Responsible Consumption And Production, Goal 13 Climate Action and Goal 17 Partnerships For The Goals.
