KUBO ESG targets

In today's world, we face major challenges: poverty, hunger, inequality, climate change and the biodiversity crisis are just some of the issues we urgently need to address. Big challenges require bold action to overcome them, and that's where the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) come in. They are designed to build a greener, fairer and better world by 2030. And we all have a role in achieving them.

An end to poverty, inequality, injustice and climate change. This is the core of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for the period 2015-2030.

With these goals, we want to achieve a sustainable world for all by 2030, where no one is excluded. In 2015, all 193 member countries of the United Nations (UN) adopted the Sustainable Development Goals. The goals apply to all countries and all people.

KUBO's strategy is based on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) used as a compass toward 2030. KUBO embraces all the SDGs, but can make impactful contributions particularly against eight of them. Third parties are used to validate, certify, assess and challenge its performance, including: SBTi and Anthesis / Climate Neutral Group. KUBO undertakes to report transparently on its performance at least on an annual basis.

Zero Hunger

The goal of ending hunger involves ensuring that everyone, everywhere in the world, has access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food. This goal seeks to ensure food security, improve nutrition and promote agricultural productivity. It aims to eliminate malnutrition and hunger, promote sustainable agricultural practices and ensure a stable food supply for the world's growing population.

KUBO is engaged in agricultural greenhouse projects worldwide. Through the design and construction of high-tech closed greenhouses and greenhouse systems, KUBO strives for sustainable solutions in the sector, supports efficient technologies and methods that improve food production and food quality.
