Accelerating the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
Our approach is guided by our commitment to the SDGs. Leveraging our experience and capabilities within the aid and development sectors, we identified three SDGs where we could influence the greatest impact: SDG 5 Gender Equality, SDG 8 Decent Work and Economic Growth and SDG 16 Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions.
These SDGs reflect our internal values and have formed the foundation upon which our impact focus areas are built:
- Putting people first: creating an inclusive, rewarding and safe workplace
- Transparency and corporate governance
- Promoting peace, partnerships and protecting our environment
CALLING ON COLLECTIVE ACTION
At CTG we believe that through collective action we can do more. Our collaborative approach led us to joining various international forums, maintaining internationally recognised certifications, and reporting yearly on our sustainability progress. We adhere to the following international standards and guiding principles:
HOW TO GET INVOLVED

You can also sign the UN Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) and join the global movement to empower women in the workplace, marketplace and community. Find out more about WEPs here.
USING OUR VOICE
A firm believer that the Private Sector has a key role to play in sustainable development and helping the refugee and migration crisis, CTG continues to actively use public platforms to share our voice, inspire other businesses and galvanise further support for gender and peace initiatives. In 2018 and 2019, we were selected as an SDG Pioneer and won the Oslo Business for Peace award for our work towards achieving gender equality in conflict and post-conflict areas.
