CTG & THE SDGS
It is the visibility CTG has in the fragile and conflict-affected countries we operate which encouraged us to align our brand with the 2030 Agenda For Sustainable Development. It doesn’t matter how large or small your business is, at CTG we believe in being resourceful and creative with what is within your capability to make a difference. We cannot take action for all 169 targets of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) but as responsible, global citizens we are determined to contribute in a meaningful and measurable way. Our core mission is to create job opportunities and economic prosperity in the countries we work in (SDG 8) and to be a change agent for Gender Equality (SDG 5); everything we do makes a difference in creating peaceful societies (SDG 16).
CTG has chosen three SDGS to focus our efforts on, where we know we can really make a difference.
The SDG Pioneers campaign recognizes those who do an outstanding job of taking action on sustainable development issues and was awarded to CTG by the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) local network representative in the UAE.
We are so proud to have been recognised by the United Nations Global Compact for how we have aligned CTG’s business strategies and social impact goals with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development
In September 2018, our CEO Alice Laugher was recognised as the SDG Pioneer for Women’s Empowerment in Conflict Settings during the UN Global Compact Leaders Summit. Hundreds of nominations were received, from which only ten finalists were selected through a rigorous committee, exemplifying how business can be a force for good.
CTG was honoured to be awarded the ‘Most Women Friendly Employer Award’ for SMEs in the MENA region at the 19th Global Women In Leadership (WIL) Economic Forum. It couldn’t have come at a more inspiring time for the company as CTG has publicly committed to SDG 5 and launched the Female First initiative, a recruitment programme focused on employing more women in the conflict-affected countries where CTG works supporting humanitarian projects.

BEHIND THE BRAND
The Agenda For Humanity was a key influence on CTG’s new branding. Our logo design is inspired by a ripple effect, symbolic of the impact that CTG’s work has on vulnerable communities. Our brand colours are inspired by three of the five areas of critical importance highlighted by the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development: People, Peace and Prosperity. CTG is also committed to upholding all five core responsibilities in all of our business dealings.
Nothing is possible without the skills of our accomplished teams. We employ men and women and are passionate about achieving SDG 5 for gender equality.
Our mission is to foster peaceful, just and inclusive societies, in conflict-affected countries in line with SDG 16.
Creating job opportunities in conflict affected countries works towards making SDG 8 and economic prosperity a reality.
CTG is a trusted partner for the humanitarian and development communities. We join our clients as a force for good, empowering local communities.
A staff engagement platform to encourage collective action, CTG Giving brings our team together to discuss social impact initiatives. Events have included marathons across mountains and auctions where team members offered up their skills (from yoga classes to horse-riding lessons). With a lot more giving planned for the future, we look forward to making CTG Giving an impactful initiative, and having some team fun while we do it.
