At wenable, we are committed to catering to the needs of struggling communities and engaging in collaborative projects which advance social and environmental agendas. Since day one, we have aligned strategies and engaged in collaborative projects which promote the broader agenda of the sustainable development goals of the United Nations.
In fact, although in a start-up phase, we have already taken steps towards joining the UN Global Compact and introduced our chief executive statement, expressing continued support for the UN Global Compact and renewing our ongoing commitment to the initiative and its principles.
We believe that societal and environmental engagement is no longer an option but rather an urgent necessity, and as such commit to making the UN Global Compact and its principles part of the strategy, culture, and day-to-day operations of our organization.
We commit to sharing data as per their specifications (e.g., annual submission of a CoP), to disclosing our strategy for managing sustainability on our website, and to integrating a sustainability report into our operations and financial reviews to ensure transparency towards our stakeholders.
We have aligned strategies to advance the following landmark and intertwined goals:
SDGs 4 and 10
Through our commitment to promote and enhance the provision of coordinated and easily accessible capacity development initiatives to communities in need, especially in low-income and least-developed countries, we combine both the SDGs 4 and 10. We want to bridge the gap in knowledge and expertise between North and South reduce inequalities, and apply the basic principle of special and differential treatment for developing and least- developed countries, in accordance with World Trade Organization.
SDGs 12 and 13
We have aligned strategies to advance two landmark and intertwined goals: Climate Action - SDG12 and Responsible Consumption and Production:
Using local resources as much as possible, both human and material
Engaging only with socially and environmentally responsible shareholders and sustainable suppliers, sourcing and acquiring only sustainable goods, products and services (whenever possible)
Reducing our CO2 footprint by delivering our advising services primarily through remote assistance.
Avoiding high carbon transport such as commercial flight whenever possible
Promoting and streamlining digitalization and carbon neutral technologies in our daily operations.
SDGs 16 and 17
Throughout the life cycle of our consultancies, we have committed to advancing SDGs 16 and 17 as we are working collaboratively with international aid organizations to develop response strategies (as well as exit strategies) that empower the local community, strengthen relevant national institutions, and build local ownership. We believe that enabling local civil society through capacity development is part of the equation that builds their resilience for the long run as well as their integration and ownership in matters that affect their lives.
