TheÂ Global Sustainable Development Goal Awards, which will take place later in 2018, are an international sustainability initiative, designed to increase private sector engagement with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) framework, through competition. In total, there are 17 SDGs, including Good Health and Well-being, Climate Action, and Zero Hunger.
LevityÂ CropScience, based in Bilsborrow, Lancashire,Â takesÂ an innovativeÂ approachÂ toÂ agronomyÂ andÂ theirÂ expertsÂ areÂ recognisedasÂ leadersÂ inÂ increasing yieldsÂ andÂ cropÂ problemÂ solving.Â Offering tailoredÂ troubleshootingÂ agronomyÂ adviceÂ for growers, their specialistÂ scientists understand the problems of growers and createÂ market leadingÂ fertiliserÂ products to solve their issues.
At the awards,Â LevityÂ CropScience will join representatives of global brands such as Molson Coors, 3M andÂ HSBC on the judging panel, to evaluate the nominated private sectorÂ organisationsÂ and choose whichÂ organisationÂ hasÂ best implementedÂ SDG programmes into their activities.
Judges for the Zero Hunger category will specifically evaluate how privateÂ organisationsÂ have tackled hunger and malnutrition around the world.
David commented: â€śIâ€™m proud to have been chosen, alongside some of the worldâ€™s biggest companies, to judge the Zero Hunger category. As a judge, I will assess the positive impact, potential for scalability and impact of SDG programmes.
â€śEliminating global hunger is arguably the most important challenge the world faces and the UNâ€™s global goal to end hunger is one close to the hearts of everyone atÂ Levity.â€ť
