Agenda 2030 for sustainable development
Agenda 2030 is an action plan with goals for transition to a sustainable society for people, the planet and prosperity. Agenda 2030's goals and sub-goals are integrated and indivisible and encompass three dimensions of sustainable development: the economic, the social and the environmental.
MIAB has identified several of the UN's Agenda 2030 goals that are particularly relevant to its operations. One of these goals is Goal 4, which aims to ensure that everyone has access to quality education and opportunities for lifelong learning. MIAB works actively to promote high quality education through its MIAB Learning programme, which offers training and skills development.
MIAB is also working on Goal 6, which focuses on ensuring clean water and sanitation for all. Through its commitment to sustainability and environmental awareness in housekeeping, MIAB contributes to reducing the negative impact that building cleaning and maintenance has on water and environmental systems.
Goal 8 is also an important part of MIAB's work with the UN Agenda 2030, which is about creating decent working conditions and promoting economic growth. MIAB is committed to social responsibility in all its operations, and by offering training and skills development, the organization strengthens employee skills and promotes economic growth.
