It is essential that companies like Unexport are committed to developing processes and products that respect the environment and sustainability.
The social demand, through consumers, clients, Public Administrations, suppliers, and workers themselves, among others, and the demands that companies suffer in the field of the Environment, cause them to be in need of undertaking environmental improvement projects.
Last April 2020 Unexport published the 2019 Progress Report, a document that describes the efforts dedicated to applying the establishment of the ten Principles (in the field of Human Rights, Labor Standards, the Environment and the fight against Corruption) and getting involved with the United Nations Global Compact, in addition to generating actions linked to the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
In this complete document, published on the web, you can find which areas or aspects of the company are being reviewed, their relationship with the SDGs and what actions have been carried out to link Unexport to the 2030 Agenda. The report is based on the reporting methodology by stakeholders, and one of them, the Environment is the one that we are going to share in this article.

On the side of the sustainable use of resources and environmentally friendly technologies, the report highlights that development can be classified as sustainable when it is capable of meeting current needs without compromising the resources and possibilities of future generations. On the other hand, the United Nations points out that “information technologies are essential to respond to development challenges”, thanks to the “great potential” of global connectivity to stimulate human development. This topic is directly related to SDG 7, which refers to affordable and clean energy, an aspect that is being reviewed by the company.
