SDG 16 among the CAC 40: Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels
This project aims to analyze activities undertaken by enterprises from CAC 40 that are related to SDG 16.
Without peace and justice, every other goal that we managed to achieve can easily collapse. Worldwide development requires justice, anti-corruption, access to information, and successful and talented leaders. Nowadays, in 2017, it is critical to find ways to fight extreme poverty, to reduce conflicts worldwide as it is not normal to see refugees fighting for survival on a daily basis. All Governments and companies should be committed to transparency and accountability. Indeed, citizens around the world should all be able to voice their opinion on how their country is run. Moreover, nobody should be left aside, there is a need to make sure that there are enough basic services such as schools and hospitals for every citizen wordlwide enabling people to thrive.
