II  SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS (SDGs)

SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) are goals that the United Nations and the international community must achieve from 2016 to 2030 to solve poverty problems around the world and realize sustainable development. SDGs, consisting of 17 goals and 169 detailed goals, organically encompass the three areas of social engagement, economic growth, and sustainable environment, putting "human-centered" value orientation first.

Zero hunger, achieving food security, improving nutritional status, and strengthening sustainable agriculture

TTHANKS pursues sustainable development through SDG-based corporate activities and products. Our service aims to achieve SDG 2.3 by doubling the agricultural productivity and income of small food producers, especially women, indigenous people, family farming, livestock, and fishermen, through safe and equal access to land and other production resources, input factors, financial services, markets, creating added value, and employment opportunities in the non-agricultural sector by 2030. It will double its productivity and output by 2030 to strengthen adaptability to climate change, weather variations, droughts, floods, and other natural disasters, ensure a sustainable food production system that gradually improves soil quality, and focus its business on SDG2.4 that is resilient agricultural practices. To strengthen the agricultural production capabilities of developing countries, especially the poorest developing countries, We will achieve SDG2.a by expanding investment in rural infrastructure, agricultural research and support service technology development, and plant and leather gene banks.

Emergency response to fight climate change and its impact 

Achieve SDG13.3 aimed at mitigating climate change, reducing impact, education on early alerts, raising awareness, and improving population and institutional capabilities. Korea has the international stigma of being a climate villain, ranking 8th in the world in annual carbon emissions and 1st in carbon emissions. The industry and energy sectors account for 90%, and the agricultural sector discharges 3%. Although it emits a small amount, agricultural soils have the potential to isolate and absorb carbon. Depending on how the soil is managed and regenerated, it becomes an important key to climate change. In the 2015 Paris Convention, all countries announced that climate change would be resolved by isolating carbon from 0.4% of the soil every year. IPCC provides soil management methods to prevent climate change. We achieve SDG13.3 by mitigating climate change and reducing impact through soil regeneration and raising awareness.

Protecting, restoring, and promoting sustainable use of the land ecosystem, sustainable management of forests, preventing desertification, stopping and recovering land degradation, and stopping biodiversity losses 

In addition, TTHANKS will strive to achieve SDG15.1 that ensures restoration, and sustainable use for land and inland freshwater ecosystems such as especially forests, wetlands, mountains, and dry land by following International Convention Obligation until 2020. By 2020, we will focus our capabilities on promoting sustainable management of all types of forests, stopping deforestation, restoring devastated forests, and achieving SDG15.2 that expands afforestation and reforestation worldwide. By 2030, we will work hard to combat desertification and restore devastated land and soil, including land affected by desertification, drought, and flooding, and to achieve a world without land devastation.
