What is Sustainability?

United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals were agreed upon in 2015 by world leaders with an aim to create a better and more sustainable future for all. There are 17 sustainable development goals and these are interconnected with respect to global challenges including those related to poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice. The goals and corresponding targets are universal, meaning they apply to all countries around the world, not just developing countries. Achieving these goals requires action on all fronts: governments, businesses, civil society, and people everywhere have a role to play.

... and how?

The DXC Compliance Data eXchange (CDX) plays a significant role by providing powerful capabilities that enable CDX users to contribute significantly towards achieving the UN sustainability goals. The compliance data management capabilities include, to name a few: Responsible Materials Manager (Conflict Minerals and Extended Minerals Reporting) facilitates eliminating funding of conflict-affected or high-risk areas (CAHRAs), and not only the Democratic Republic of Congo and adjoining countries through the sale of minerals stolen from artisanal mines in the region and ensuring artisanal miners receive living wages for the materials they produce. 

Eliminations of heavy metals in food and water supply via the End of Life Vehicle (ELV) and multiple RoHS regulations, Substance of Concern reporting, identifying toxins, poisons and contaminants that prevent healthy lives so as to improve health and reproductive health and promote well-being for all. Enabling business to identify, manage and eliminate hazardous chemicals in all types of commercial and consumer products.
