2021 Sustainability Report

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) promote action in areas that are critical to ending poverty, protecting the environment and improving the prosperity of all people through economic, social and technological progress. They are relevant for all countries and all sectors of the society, including business.

Nova recognizes the importance of playing our part in helping achieve the SDGs by their target date of 2030. Of the 17 SDGs, we have identified the following six that most closely align with our strategy, operational geography and areas of focus.

In targeting our impact on these SDGs, Nova aims to deliver sustained, shared valued for our stakeholders and shareholders through responsible sustainability practices. To achieve this, we have put in place a number of governance measures and systems across our organization.

As we grow as a company, we will expand our commitment in these areas with appropriate targets and measurement against the targets to ensure they form an integral part of our approach and overall business strategy.
