The UCSI SDG Month is celebrated with greater determination and effort in connecting its community members, partners and the public to spark collaborative action for creating a regenerative and sustainable community. As a company with over 20 subsidiaries, UCSI aims to leverage its partnerships with other companies, learning institutions, government agencies, regional centres, non-governmental agencies, civil society organisations and so on towards greater awareness and collective action to address this century’s pressing needs to care for people and the planet.
The report from UN Global Compact 2020 that the world is not on track to achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and COVID 19 pandemic, although disheartening, has aspired UCSI Group and its subsidiaries to connect virtually to foster greater partnerships in various areas. Among them are creating greater awareness on the need for restoring the eco-system, support to enhance positive well-being, exchange of knowledge and experience, discourse, and finding solutions for remote and collective implementation.
More now than ever, this is the time for us to aspire and to work together and for a better future. We hope that this SDG Month will be the beginning of a series of gatherings for strategic convergence efforts locally, nationally and internationally.
