Barloworld's contribution to the SDGs

Following the adoption of the UN SDGs by all UN member states in 2016, Barloworld prioritised various SDGs based on what we believe our contribution to them can be. We identified eight to which we can make a direct contribution and five to which we can make an indirect contribution.
