UN Sustainable development goals Goals for the world

The United Nations brought the Sustainable Development Goals to life to provide a roadmap for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and in the future. 

In September 2015, the 193 UN member states met at the United Nations headquarters in New York with one purpose – to improve the state of the world and humanity. A total of 17 Sustainable Development Goals for the world were developed.

Areas such as the economy, social affairs, climate, and ecology, but also human rights, the rule of law, good governance, peace, and security were scrutinized and given targets.

It is the responsibility of states, governments, companies, and individuals to do their utmost to achieve these goals. HELIOZ actively contributes to 9 SDGs by implementing its own climate projects:

  • Convert water treatment in households by introducing solar water disinfection (SODIS) in combination with WADI as an effective, sustainable, cost-efficient, and environmentally friendly method (SDG 6 & 13).
  • Provide safe drinking water for more than 100,000 people (SDG 6).
  • Raise awareness of water disinfection, hygiene, and sanitation (WASH) interventions in rural communities in Asia and Africa (SDG 6).
  • Reduce family health expenditure, saving 27 USD in household income per year in India (SDG 1).
  • Strengthen the role of women as the main providers of clean drinking water (SDG 5).
  • Reduce indoor air pollution and CO2 emissions (SDG 13).
  • Prevent the occurrence of water-borne diseases. Reduction of 80 % e.g. in Uganda (SDG 3).
  • Protect local forests (SDG 13 & 15).
  • Increase school attendance (up to 40 %) and working days (up to 60 %) due to reduced inability to work (SDG 1, 4 & 10).
  • Form and strengthen international partnerships for climate activities (SDG 17).
