Sustainable Development Goals

As part of its ongoing sustainability commitment, Manchester Airports Group (MAG) asked Simply Sustainable to identify the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which were most relevant to its business strategy and operations.

Starting from a selection of material topics, which we identified through an in-depth assessment we conducted an SDGs mapping analysis to identify the most relevant goals and developed a list of actions MAG could take that would contribute to their achievement. This required a detailed review of the targets and indicators that sit beneath the 17 goals.

When conducting the analysis, we took into account the position of the wider aviation sector in the context of the SDGs and compared MAG’s approach to that of its peers and competitors.

The output was a compelling report highlighting the most relevant SDGs to MAG, and a set of strategic recommendations about how MAG could contribute to each, through its business strategy and operations.

“Thank you for giving your all, engaging with our stakeholders and creating a report and presentation that caught the Leadership Team’s attention and has inspired people to be open to, and ready for, change”

Central England Co-operative were looking for a specialist CR and sustainability partnership we could grow to fill skills and resourcing gaps on special projects. Nicola and Simply Sustainable were recommended to us by another large business and we have so far worked on five projects of different sizes. No matter what the scale of the project Nicola and the team give their very best. Their knowledge and experience is wide and varied and has proved invaluable to growing our CR competency.
