Aligning our goals to the world's
We’ve identified a number of key aspirations that align to the goals we directly impact, which are connected to our value chain and draw on our core assets and capabilities. We’ll also continue exploring how we can contribute to the goals that we indirectly impact.
Video: The Australia Post logo sits in the bottom left corner of a red screen. A title reads 'Sustainable Development Goals'. The Sustainable Development goals features a circle made of 17 brightly coloured wedges.
Audio: Voiceover: We understand that our operations have a global impact. That's why our 2025 Sustainability Roadmap is underpinned by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, the world's 2030 sustainability agenda. We've identified a number of SDGs that intersect with each stage of our operations and value chain, some we impact directly and others indirectly. Addressing these global goals is critical to seeing our customers, communities and our business prosper and become more inclusive.
Video: Six of the wedges turn grey. The circle starts to spin around the words 'Sustainable Development Goals.
Audio: Voiceover: So we've set strong aspirations for those SDGs that we directly impact. We aim to achieve them by 2030.
Video: After a zoom-in, a wedge fills the left side of the screen. The wedge contains a numbered goal. Before each goal is listed, the circle spins, bringing up the next wedge. Text appears beside each wedge in turn.
