With the sustainability report, the State Treasury reports to its stakeholders about its efforts to promote sustainable development. The report states how the State Treasury’s activities promote the achievement of selected UN Sustainable Development Goals.
The sustainability report focuses on the agency’s “handprint”, which refers to the ways by which the State Treasury can influence the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals while performing its duties. For 2021, the following four UN Sustainable Development Goals, which the State Treasury has the potential to impact while performing its duties, have been selected for reporting: 8 Decent work and economic growth, 9 Industry, innovation and infrastructure, 11 Sustainable cities and communities and 16 Peace, justice and strong institutions.
The sustainability report also describes the agency’s “footprint”, or negative impacts on its operating environment. The report’s footprint section focuses on environmental impacts of the State Treasury’s activities in four main areas: energy and water, transport, procurement and waste. The report presents the State Treasury’s key figures, monitoring data and the measures the agency has taken to reduce its footprint in these areas.
