Our sustainability program at Ampcontrol has been guided by the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs are a set of 17 goals developed by the United Nations to guide governments, businesses, and individuals to deliver ambitious global outcomes by 2030.
With innovation as one of our core values, Ampcontrol is a long-time supporter of research and development from businesses right here in the Hunter region NSW. We love to collaborate and partner with others in the region as we know that together, we can innovate in creative ways to meet industry needs and adapt to changing markets.
To allow us to identify the sustainable development opportunities that we can contribute in our local community, Ampcontrol is proud to be supporting an Australian-first study of local SDG indicators in the Hunter region.
Hunter region SDG Task Force
We are supporting the Hunter region SDG Task Force and the University of Newcastle in a study to baseline the indicators for each of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals in the Hunter.
‘The Hunter Region SDG Taskforce is a group of motivated businesses, not-for-profits and government bodies who are focused on collaborating to achieve the UN SDGs. Established in 2020, the Taskforce was conceived to foster accountability and drive education and collaboration.’
The project represents an example of SDG Goal 17 Partnerships for the goals in action. It is the first of its kind in Australia to apply the UN SDGs at a regional level. The effort is a collaboration among 18 funding partners, including Ampcontrol, as well as the wider members of the Taskforce.
The group aims for the Hunter to provide an example of regional localisation of the SDGs, which can be copied elsewhere in Australia and globally. Results of the work are expected to be made available in September 2022.
