STEP-G supports the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals

As an industrial company we embrace our responsibility to support and drive sustainable development at all times. The United Nations Agenda 2030 resolved in September 2015 defines actions for sustainable development in a balance between economic progress, social justice and ecological responsibility. Naturally, STEP-G takes this responsibility seriously. Sustainable development is a core principle in our daily work, and we consistently take it into account. Therefore, at STEP-G we contribute to and support eleven UN sustainable development goals (SDGs).
