Good Causes

We recognise the crucial importance of the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG's) which we have distilled into 5 overarching areas of categorisation to support so many Good Causes.

The UN SDG's

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

One of the key features of Ateliers Verts® is its promotion of Good Causes such as charities & NGO’s. Ateliers Verts® is committed to promoting these good causes by raising their profiles and where possible, generating an income for them. In that regard we have distilled the 17 SDGs into 5 overarching areas of categorisation: Land, Air, Ocean, People, Animals.

Land

We need to protect all Life on Land (SDG 15) with Clean Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure (SDG 9). Here are the Good Causes related to Land based issues Good Causes-Land
