Sustainability Charter

ZANEROBE Sustainable Development Charter

March 1, 2019.

The United Nations has developed 17 goals that form the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, a blueprint to achieving a better and more sustainable future for all. The goals address the biggest global challenges we are currently facing, including poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, peace and justice. Each goal consists of a transformative set of sustainability, economic, and social targets to achieve by 2030 and call on global and local actors – governments, private sector, civil society – to play their part. Our goal at ZANEROBE is to implement and adopt sustainable, positive and effective changes that align with as many of the 17 goals as possible.

The UN Sustainable Development Goals

We’re committed to offering style and quality in equal proportions to sustainability, ethical transparency and corporate integrity. Endeavouring to set a local and international standard based on attainable goals and a shared vision.

We’re under no illusion that our new commitment to the highest possible sustainable and ethical practices will be easy to achieve but will endeavour to incrementally change our current processes for the betterment of our industry, community and the World.
