How our strategy and sustainability priorities align with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

The UN Sustainable Development Goals(SDGs) represent a global agenda to address the most pressing challenges facing our world, including climate action, access to healthcare and reducing inequities throughout the world. We recognize the importance and urgency of this global initiative and how GE plays a critical role in infrastructure, advancing quality of life and furthering global development sustainably. GE has been a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact since 2008 and we see close alignment between 11 of the 17 SDGs and our strategy and sustainability priorities.
