Many people think business is just about money, services or products. At CHT Holdings, it’s so much more: it’s about making things better, about making a difference. That’s our why.
CHT-Holdings’ Corporate Social Responsibility is centered
on the execution of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
The SDGs, otherwise known as the Global Goals, are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.
These 17 goals are interconnected. Often the key to success for one SDG involves tackling issues more commonly associated with another.
The SDGs work in the spirit of partnership and pragmatism to make the right choices now to improve life, in a sustainable way for future generations. They provide clear guidelines and targets for all countries to adopt in accordance with their own priorities and the environmental challenges of the world at large. The SDGs are an inclusive agenda. They tackle the root causes of poverty and unite us to make a positive change for both people and planet.
