Since Hemper was born we have always carried out projects and initiatives that go beyond our main activity. The day we discovered the Sustainabe Development Goals from the UN, we found the perfect context to organize and put focus to these initiatives in a diverse and international impact framework. Today we want to introduce how this all makes sense. The 17 Projects: 17 activations, with 17 brands/companies/people framed in each of the 17 SDGs.

The goal is to spread, participate, talk, work, and contribute, but above all, understand the challenges we face. We want the message to be spread and to get further, together with talent and creativity. Showing that if we join forces we can reach more people and contribute to global sustainable development.

How are we going to do it? The answer is found in the SDGs themselves. One of them will allow compliance with the rest; the SDG number 17: Alliances to achieve the objectives.

 

We are here to contribute, not to compete. We want to ally ourselves because that's how we will multiply the impact. Ally to create a more just and sustainable world doing what we are passionate about.

We would love you to join us on this journey. So, stay tuned for everything that is yet to come...

What are the Sustainable Development Goals?

In Paris, the United Nations write and agreed to the so-called 2030 agenda. This agenda gathers the international challenges we face and indicates the steps to achieve a global sustainable development.

This agenda is summarized in a very visual and understandable way for everyone in 17 sustainable development goals. Each of these objectives is based on a series of global problems and situations that could improve. Consequently, each of these objectives has specific goals and indicators to measure them.

These SDGs have come much further from being an institutional-level agenda. Today the SDGs are the language we speak to all of us who want to contribute to sustainable development. And they have shown us that, from each role, we must act, so that we can live together fairly and equally, and in tune with the planet.

Hemper, as a brand, has a fundamental role as a speaker towards society. We want to use this power of influence to give a voice to the SDGs, and through our community, contribute to the achievement of the goals. As a company, we realized that by proposing only a profitable business model, we will not achieve the impact we want to achieve as a brand.
