It’s always been important to us that MausTech reflects our personal values and ethics. So that’s why we want to make sure that our business has a positive impact on people and the planet. Yep, we’re those kind of people.
Enter the Sustainable Development Goals…
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals provide a blueprint for the future of our planet through collaboration between governments, the private sector and civil societies.
Whilst that’s quite wordy and possibly doesn’t sound exciting, here’s a handy infographic to show you what all of the goals are:
We first looked at this and thought “well, we want to make an impact on allllll the things”, but quickly realised that our impact could be maximised if we focus on just a few.
Our Commitment to the SDGs
After drilling down into the goals, our business, our skills and personal ethics (yep, it took a while!) we have determined that Goals 1, 8 and 15 are most relevant to our business and the goals that we will prioritise in our everyday operations.
Goal One: No Poverty / Goal Eight: Decent Work and Economic Growth
We aim to support goal 1 by helping to fund a total of 20 entrepreneurs in developing countries by the end of 2020. We’re focusing particularly on SDG 1.1, 1.4, 8.3 and 8.5.
You can see the entrepreneurs we have supported and learn more about their businesses on our Facebook page.
In 2017, we supported 2 entrepreneurs. So far in 2018, we have supported 2 entrepreneurs through Lendwithcare.
Goal Fifteen: Life On Land
We aim to support goal 15 by contributing to charities and causes that focus on the natural environment.
From 2017, we have donated a monthly amount to WWF UK to support their work which contributes to SDG 15.5 and 15.7
Mid-2019, we joined B1G1 and we will plant a tree for each client we have every month which contributes to SDG 15.2.
We are also contributing to other SDGs through B1G1 and here is our real-time impact:
