The 2030 Agenda
and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
On September 25, 2015, 193 countries pledged to work together to achieve the United Nations’ 17 SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS, setting a deadline of 2030 for their fulfillment.
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is a roadmap developed to achieve a common social goal: greater global and sustainable human development. This agenda proposes global action not only for the government sector, but also involves and commits companies, social organizations, and other stakeholders working at international, national, regional, and local levels.
The private sector has a central role to play in this roadmap, which is both a responsibility and an unprecedented opportunity to align business goals with those of greater social justice and sustainability.
Thus, Armando Alvarez Group, as a signatory partner of the Global Compact since 2018, has adopted these goals as a guide to developing an action plan that includes concrete, ambitious and realistic goals for the group.
Our 2030 goals
Armando Alvarez Group is committed to acting in a manner consistent with the principles it upholds, promoting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations Global Compact and we are especially committed to working on six of them.
Sustainable development objetives:
- Use of Biodegradable Materials that can degrade under composting conditions.
- Use of Biomaterials, avoiding the depletion of non-renewable resources.
- Use of Recycled Materials, to promote reuse cycles while keeping the quality of the final product.
- Use of High Technology, both in processes and materials to facilitate the simplicity of the polymeric structure, supporting its functionality and reducing, therefore, the amount of waste generated at the end of its useful life.
- We reinforce one of the EU goals for the year 2030, which seeks the total recyclability of all packaging in the EU market by that date.
use of sustainable materials
- Reduction of the carbon footprint of any business activity carried out by the AAG, whether in the production of inputs, waste generation, or energy consumption required by such activity.
- Significant decreases in energy consumption and greater efficiency in energy use. This requires actions in three different areas: good practices, use of new technologies, and use of raw materials with better performance during processing.
- Determination of environmental impacts, identifying the critical points that allow their alignment with the company’s strategic environmental goals.
- Design a plan to reduce the impact generated by the company, identify the most important emission elements of the organization, and focus efforts on their reduction.

ZERO WASTE DISPOSAL
Waste recovery and reuse. This has become a strategic option for the future, with the clear goal of minimizing or recovering waste production.
- Direct management in the treatment of waste to apply reuse and recovery techniques framed within the Circular Economy strategy (GoCircularPlastics) of the AAG, with the strategic guideline of reducing as much as possible the amount of waste destined for disposal in landfills, considerably reducing the environmental impact.
