Our sustainability work

At OEM Automatic, we strive for sustainable development. To achieve sustainable development, we must ensure a balance between driving economic growth, environmental care and social well-being. So, we are following the ‘Global Goals’ initiative – part of the United Nation’s 2030 agenda. 

What is the ‘Global Goals’ initiative?

In 2015, many world leaders agreed to a series of Global Goals. These goals aim to tackle associated issues such as poverty, hunger, health, education, gender equality, clean energy, climate action, biodiversity, peace, and many more areas which you can explore here. 

We are currently focusing on four global goals, outlined below, and will quantify our results and report regularly according to the protocol and framework.
