Share Your SR Stories...

The SRTC wants to hear about your projects related to social responsbility (SR). Share your stories... What types of activities does your employer participate in, or what about your local ASQ sections?

Dear Jennifer.

Hi
I am Sunil. I live & work in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

I will be happy to speak on "
Gift of Quality to United Nations Sustainable Development Goals" 
I am speaking on this subject in Excellence Summit, Sweden in Sept. 2018.
I am ASQ Fellow, Reciepient of ASQ Lancaster Medal & ex Member ASQ Board of Directors.
If interested we can connect through my hotmail account.

Rgds.,

Sunil



In continuation of Millennium Development Goals, in Sept. 2015, 193 member countries of United Nations adopted 17 Sustainable Development Goals, (SDGs), also known as Global Goals.  The goals are underpinned by 169 targets and 230 Indicators. SDGs are universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity with a commitment to “Leave No-One Behind”. 

The 2030 Agenda is deliberately ambitious and transformational. E.g. Goal No.2 is to “End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture” supported with facts & figures.
 
  • There is more than enough food produced in the world to feed everyone, yet 815 million people go hungry.
  • One third of food produced for human consumption is lost or wasted globally = about 1.3 billion tons per year

Highly engaging presentation, will share fact based performance data on host of social issues such as health, clean water, education, sanitation, child  mortality rates, and supported with best practices and inspiring stories about the leaders, innovations, policies that have made this world a better place.

Improvement is at the core of  SDGs and the Targets such as Reducing waste, Reducing Child mortality, Enhancing Safety, Reliability, Affordability, Productivity, etc. are repeated throughout  SDGs. Plus projected costs of achieving SDGs is expected to be in billions of US dollars thereby huge potential to save cost of poor quality.

As achieving SDGs requires commitment and involvement from one and all it is a wonderful, unique and huge opportunity for Quality professionals to get involved in SDGs. Quality Leaders and Professionals  can contribute their knowledge & expertise in tackling complex social issues. They can help Governments and other organizations save billions of dollars in implementing UN SDGs by   about adopting Quality Management strategies.
