WeHero Corporate Volunteer Programs and the United Nations 17 Goals

The United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs for Sustainable Development has established 17 goals intended to improve sustainable development by the year 2030. Building upon the principle of “leaving no one behind”, the UN has emphasized the importance of raising global awareness for their 2030 agenda. In an effort to promote active dialogue and implementation of these sustainable development goals (SDGs), WeHero is committed to ensuring our corporate volunteering and giving strategies are in line with furthering the UN SDGs.

WeHero is committed to becoming part of the common movement towards achieving the 2030 milestones that over 5,000 companies and 178 countries have committed to.

WeHero focuses on ensuring companies reach their social impact goals. For WeHero, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG) have always been key factors when designing our corporate volunteer programs and consulting practices. More than that, WeHero is committed to helping the UN reach its goal of holistically improving sustainable development by 2030.

These goals are:

  • Goal 1 - End Poverty: End poverty in all its forms, everywhere.
