Creating a better world with the global goals

We believe the Global Goals, developed by the United Nations in 2015, are humanity’s best chance at creating a better world by 2030. After speaking to Student Beans’ employees and reviewing our business model we identified five goals, which we believe are most relevant and offer us the best opportunity to have real impact.

3 - Good Health

To ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages

2 - Quality Education

Ensure inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning

13 - Climate Action

Taking urgent action to tackle climate change and its impacts

12 - Responsible Consumption and Production

Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns

10 - Reduce Inequalities

Ensure inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning.

We will be using the SDG Action Manager Tool to self assess progress on these goals and will include the results in our first Social Impact Report to be published by January 2023.

Our Approach

In this ‘Decade of Action’, there has never been a more urgent need to eradicate inequalities and create a better future for young people.

Speed Wins

We believe Speed Wins and will set ambitious short and medium-term goals that improve the lives of students around the world.

Be Humble

We believe in being humble and work with experts including charities and crucially, students themselves to help guide us on what must be done and, we never assume we know the answers best. We will always be purposeful in action rather than performative while recognising we aren’t perfect.

Our approach
Planting trees

We are all Accountable

We are accountable for our actions and think carefully about our impacts both on an individual and company level. All employees are empowered to contribute to our social impact strategy through internal mechanisms.

Deliver Results that Wow

We will be judged on our results and so are committed to transparency. We will report as a minimum on an annual basis against a set of indicators to be confirmed. Our first Social Impact Report will be published in January 2023.

Choose Positivity

We use our voice and our reach to shine a light on students and brands doing incredible things. In a world faced with so many problems we’re committed to showing why there’s reason to be positive.
