Packington Estate & the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
Packington Estate has four overarching pillars that drive the ethos and spirit of the Estate and provide the building blocks for our operations. These are Restoration, Stewardship, Sustainability, and Wellness. The Estate is in a transition phase moving away from conventional and out-dated practises, to more positive, forward thinking and environmentally-aware processes. Much of the Estate land and property is now undergoing an evolution towards more sustainable methods, not just in farming, but also across the board, all the way through to its corporate governance.
As part of this transition process, the Estate is a supporter and advocate of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. We all know that we face big challenges in today’s world: poverty, hunger, inequality and climate change are just some of the issues we need to address urgently.
Big challenges need bold action to overcome them, and that is where the Sustainable Development Goals come in, otherwise known as the “Global Goals”. These Goals are a plan agreed to by all 197 Member Nations of the UN and set in motion by Resolution Agenda 30, to build a greener, fairer, better world by 2030, and everyone has a role in helping to achieve them.
Packington Estate has taken on board a number of these Goals, and aspires to promote the Goals, generate awareness for the Goals, and encourage others to be inspired to take on the Goals in their own capacity.
