Sustainable Development Goals

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of 17 global priorities defined by the member states of the United Nations in 2015. The goals, which are to be reached by 2030, aim to ensure harmonious social, economic and environmental development around the world. Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals requires cooperation at the international, national and local levels and the involvement of various sectors of society, including national and local governments, civil society, the private sector and international organizations.

Through the shared commitment of management and employees across the company, Atman is contributing to the effective implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals and positively impacting itself, the society and the environment. Such solidarity creates real change and strengthens sustainability at the local and global levels.
